The Arthur Terry Learning Partnership is a Multi-Academy Trust, a charitable company without share capital. The Trust Board, comprised of Directors known as Trustees, holds collective legal and regulatory accountability for the ATLP and its schools. They meet on a regular basis to support schools and provide strategic management and leadership of the ATLP. Trustees are supported in their efforts at the individual school level by local governance representatives, Advocates, whom form trust-wide committees in order to ensure a dual focus on both individual school, and collective improvement and excellence across the ATLP family of schools. Advocate roles are streamlined with specific roles and responsibilities in order to enhance and support the strategic priorities of each school and the Trust, and to avoid bureaucracy and duplication of accountability.

Governance structures at the ATLP are designed to both reflect and deliver the ATLP’s ‘One Trust’ vision through a single Board of Trustees a single scheme of delegation and specific Terms of Reference for each Committee established by the Trust Board.
