GovernanceSchool Governors


Governance at Palmers Cross was reshaped following the conversion to an Academy within Elston Hall’s Multi Academy Trust on 1st April 2016.

There are three tiers of responsibility who lead and manage the Governance of the Trust and each School.

Members and Directors have responsibility for Trust matters, while each school within the Trust is led by a Local Governing Board.
