Nexus Multi Academy Trust

Nexus Multi Academy Trust is delighted to announce its partnership with Inspiring Governance.

Nexus Multi Academy Trust is the second multi-academy Trust in England to sign the School Governor Champion Charter, pledging its support to champion the role of school governor and support staff members to become governors in local schools.

Founded in 2016, we have the highest ambitions possible for anyone and everyone we work with. Our vision is that we are constantly “learning together, to be the best we can be”. This vision is what we aspire to and is as relatable to every employee and partner of our Trust as it is to our children, young adults and their families.

We believe that joining the local governance team of a different school/trust offers our education professionals a fantastic development opportunity. That by contributing your experience and expertise in such a way, you will provide effective support and challenge to another school while bringing those skills and that experience you develop back into our schools.

“We have a strong belief in ethical leadership as a Trust, and we see our MAT as part of the civic structure that has a responsibility to support wider society, and especially the state education sector. As such, we very much believe in being an employer that champions school governors. We are, all of us, custodians of public service and school governors play a huge role in acting as the guardians of our ethos and our ethics. There are few voluntary roles that come with such high level of responsibility as school governors, and the more we can do as a MAT to facilitate and enable more people to join the local, regional and national school governance network, the better our state education sector can be!”
