As Colyton Grammar School is an academy, the Board of Trustees is responsible for controlling the school’s management and administration. The Board consists of the Trustees (previously called “governors”) who are also the directors of the academy trust. They have responsibility for directing the academy’s affairs, for ensuring that it is solvent, well-run and delivering the trust’s charitable outcomes for the benefit of the public.

Colyton Grammar School is an Academy School.

The Board currently consists of:

  • Headteacher
  • Four Parent Trustees
  • Eight Other Trustees (appointed by the Members under Article 50)

The Trustees come from various professional backgrounds and contribute different skills. A mixture of experienced and newly appointed Trustees provides the benefits of both continuity and a fresh approach to the Board.

There are a minimum of five full Board meetings per academic year. The two main committees (Education and Resources) meet twice per term. The committees give detailed consideration to specific issues, take decisions on delegated matters and make recommendations to the full Board.

All meetings are minuted by the Secretary to Trustees and circulated to all Trustees. Full Board minutes are published here.

A number of Trustees have links with specific portfolios of responsibility and make a report at each main Board Meeting. Click here to view assigned roles.

There is a Duty Trustee present at each Parents' Meeting.
