The Interim Academy Board (IAB) comprises of people chosen and appointed by The Good Shepherd Trust, for their expertise and ability to work with school leaders, in order to accelerate the rate of school improvement.

There is much to celebrate in the school’s progress to date and the IAB are supporting the initiatives for ongoing improvement, which are already having a demonstrable impact. The IAB provides strategic support and challenge, are directly accountable to the Trust Board and meet on a monthly basis.
