Cygnus Trust Academy


The Members have appointed a Board of Trustees.

The trustees are responsible for:

  • Setting the strategic direction of the trust

  • Holding senior leadership to account

  • Overseeing the trust’s financial performance

Trustees are ultimately responsible and accountable for the trust. It is up to them to make sure the trust is compliant with its charitable objectives, but also with company and charity law.
