St Anne’s Academy is part of the Cranmer Education Trust. Formalised cross school governance arrangements can help with efficiencies, with ultimate corporate accountability held by the Trust Board and corporate and strategic functions being carried out centrally, leaving local governing boards free to focus on pupil progress and attainment for their individual schools.

The Trust Board has established an Interim Board at St Anne’s Academy taking effect from 1st March 2021. The purpose of the Interim Board is to drive and enable fast school improvement through focussed and frequent meetings over an agreed period of time.

St Anne’s Interim Board:

Ian Rimmer (Principal, King James’ School, Huddersfield)
