LGC Register of Interests 2022-2023

The LGC is under duty to publish their register of interests on the DPA website. It sets out the relevant business interests of governors and details of any other educational establishments they govern. It also sets out any relationships between governors and members of the academy staff including spouses, partners and relatives.

A Co-Opted Governor is a person appointed by the LGC and who, in the opinion of the LGC, has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the academy.
