Our Team

Our academies are supported by a central executive team which works with Principals, academy leaders and academy councils to implement our model and deliver our vision.

Our board of trustees oversees the central organisation and is the legal governing body for all OGAT academies. The board of trustees delegates many of its functions to the Academy Council in each academy. The local community, parents and staff are represented on each Academy Council.
