Academy Trust governance structure establishes clear lines of accountability, overview and scrutiny at three levels: The L.E.A.D. Academy Trust Members; the L.E.A.D. Academy Trust Board and its Committees; and the Academy Advisory Bodies (AABs).


The AAB meets formally three times each year (termly) and also meets informally each term through engagement meetings.
