Newark Hill Academy

Academy Advisory Council

Each Academy within the Greenwood Academies Trust has its own Academy Advisory Council (AAC) that works closely with their Principal. The AACs are committees of the Trust Board, which approves their terms of reference.

The AACs are small groups and have staff, parent and community representation.

Although legal responsibilities are held by the GAT Trust Board, the Advisory Councils provide key advice and support to the Principal of the Academy and represent the interests of their community, reporting to the Greenwood Academies Trust Board on local issues to ensure the Academy is as successful as possible.

Members are also encouraged to participating fully in the life of the Academy and act in an ambassadorial role within their community.
