Local governing body

Anthem delegates certain responsibilities to a local governing body (LGB) through an agreed scheme of delegation.

The purpose of the LGB is to support Anthem in implementing its core purpose of advancing education for the public benefit and to be a link to the school community while providing challenge and support at a local level.

Local Governors are appointed by Anthem Schools Trust. They serve for a term of four years and can be re-elected for a further four years to serve a maximum of eight years.

The LGB’s delegated responsibilities are sub-divided into three core functions:

  • strategic improvement
  • support and challenge
  • communication and collaboration

The current members of our local governing body are:
