The MAT is one legal entity, a charitable company limited by guarantee.

There are three levels of Governance:

  1. Members, who agree articles which define the charitable purpose and how the MAT will run, appoint Trustees and remove if necessary, receive company accounts and annual report and hold the Board of Trustees to account.
  2. A Board of Trustees (Directors) who have ultimate responsibility for running each academy and will deal with the strategic running of the MAT. The Board delegates day-to-day running of each academy to a Local Governing Body (LGB). The level of delegation can be different for each academy. Accountability always remains with the Board of Trustees.
  3. A Local Governing Body who have powers delegated by the Board of Trustees to oversee the day to day running of each academy.
