Mixed multi-academy trusts

Details

There are 3 main draft model articles of association, agreed with the Catholic Education Service and the National Society for the Church of England for use by church schools wishing to become an academy.

While the model articles are broadly similar, there are differences in the way the governance arrangements at membership and governing body level have been reflected.
