Lutterworth College

Our Academy Trust and Governance


 The information below gives an overview of  governance at The Lutterworth Academies Trust & Lutterworth College.


Lutterworth College is part of a multi-academy trust (MAT) called The Lutterworth Academies Trust (TLAT) which previously included The Sir Frank Whittle Studio School (closed) but which is now classified as an 'empty MAT' as it contains one school, Lutterworth College, nominally a Single Academy Trust (SAT).

In essence, The Lutterworth Academies Trust and Lutterworth College are 'one in the same' entity currently. The Trust Directors look after the Trust element whilst the Local Governing Board focus on the school element.

Trust Personnel

The Chief Executive Officer of TLAT is Nick Summers (previously the Headteacher of Lutterworth College) who also fulfils the role of Accounting Officer for the Trust. Nick's role became part-time as of September 2022.

The Chief Financial Officer of TLAT is Laura Kendrick who is also the School Business Leader for Lutterworth College.

The Governance Professional of TLAT is Fiona Thom-Wood who is also the school Clerk for Lutterworth College.

The role, training & standards for Academy governance


Click on this link for a short animated film from the National Governance Association explaining the critical role played by volunteers involved in academy governance.

Opportunities for training and self development is a fundamental part of being part of Academy governance and there will be an expectation that, as part of your role, you will attend both statutory and non-statutory training.

Being a part of the governance at the Trust  is enormously rewarding, both in terms of the range of issues considered and the satisfaction gained from ensuring there is a robust accountability framework to maintain the highest standards for every young person attending Lutterworth College.

Governors are recruited from a wide range of backgrounds and skills, and we are very fortunate to be able to call upon a wide range of experience to support our work.

Governance work to the School’s Core Values and the Standards in Public Life (The ‘Nolan Principles’) in all that they do. Their practice is compliant with the requirements of the Academy Trust Handbook.

How do I become a part of the Academy governance ?

Potential  committee members should register their interest by identifying what skills and knowledge they have which would contribute to the success of the school.

The statement should be no more than one page in length. All expressions of interest will be looked at by the committee before the most appropriate person/people are appointed.
