Governance - Hub Advisory Board (HAB)


Our school is pleased to be working as part of Westcountry Schools Trust (WeST). From 1 January 2023 schools in WeST belong to one of four Hubs. Each Hub is supported by a Hub Advisory Board (HAB) which serves to provide a connection between the Trustees, schools and their communities. HABs meet three times a year to consider reports from executive leaders and matters arising from HAB members’ visits to school. After each HAB meeting the Chair and Vice-Chair of the HAB meet with CEO and Chair of Trust, ensuring a flow of local knowledge and oversight from the HAB to the trust board.

Members are appointed to make sure that the Trust is fulfilling its aims, following its vision and abiding by the law. 



Trustees are strategic in ensuring the objectives are upheld, monitoring the effectiveness of individual schools, ensuring schools are performing to the best of their ability and that they receive the support they require.
