Boleyn Trust is led by a board of non-executive trustees plus the Chief Executive. Our non-executive directors are successful and committed professionals chosen for their knowledge of business, law, the creative industries, finance and, of course, education at all levels.

The Trustees are responsible for the general control, management and administration of the trust.  The responsibility for the actions of the company is vested in the “Trustees” of the Boleyn Trust (together, referred to as "the Trust Board"), who are the company directors registered with Companies House (they have a similar role to governors in a local authority-maintained school).  The Trustees are personally responsible for the actions of the Trust and the Schools and are accountable to the Members, the Secretary of State for Education and to the wider community for the quality of the education received by all pupils of the Schools and for the expenditure of public money.  The Trustees are required, as trustees and pursuant to the Funding Agreements, to have systems in place through which they can assure themselves of the quality, safety and good practice of the affairs of the Trust.
