Rainhill High School is the lead school in Stephenson Multi Academy Trust.
The trustees are responsible for the same three core governance functions performed by the governing body in a maintained school:
- Setting the direction.
- Holding the head teacher to account.
- Ensuring financial probity.
As charity trustees, they must also ensure that they are complying with charity law requirements. Academy trusts are charitable companies and the trustees are company directors and must comply with company law requirements.
