The Governing Board has a wide range of responsibilities, including planning the academy's future direction and raising the standards of student achievement through a process of challenge and support. Governors are also accountable to parents and the wider community for the performance of the academy.
The Governing Board comprises a number of different types of Governor, who all bring with them different experiences and skills developed through their life. This diversity adds strength to the work of the Governing Board. All governors undertake their work as volunteers.
The Governing Board is now a single body across New Rickstones Academy and Maltings Academy.
