Message From The Chair Of The Board

Welcome to the White Rose Academies Trust.  

We are an ambitious Trust with very high aspirations for the children and diverse communities which we serve.  Our values underpin everything we do and our compassionate approach is reflected in our students and how we all work together as a Trust.

Our Board is made up of incredibly talented and inspiring people.  With backgrounds and experience spanning the public and private sector, our members bring both strong business acumen and extensive education skills and knowledge. 

We are focused on building the best environment for our academies to flourish and by providing excellent governance we aim to:

  • ensure clarity of vision and strategic direction


  • hold executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation, its students and the performance of staff


  • oversee the financial performance of the organisation and makes sure its money is well spent

We are thrilled with the improvements and progress achieved by all our academies so far.  Our rating of ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with Leeds City Academy also achieving ‘Outstanding’ for Leadership and Management, is something we are incredibly proud of.  We know we have the right teams of professionals in our academies to take us further as we continue to grow the Trust.
