Academy Trust

Wildern became a stand alone academy in 2011.  On the 1st July 2018 it became a Multi Academy Trust.

As an outward looking school, our students’ learning is rich in its understanding of cultural diversity within a global context and as a consequence our ethos/culture of respect pervades throughout.

At Wildern we believe in the power of the Arts to promote personal development, self-reliance, creativity and independence of thought, promoting confidence and responsibility.

Our music academy adds a further dimension to the cultural life of our school offering both opportunities inside and outside the classroom.

Our sports ethos focuses on personal health, fitness and well-being, in addition to encouraging sports competition and promoting team spirit.

Wildern is a high-performing school.  Our impressive academic success ensures that our students are ready for life beyond Wildern; many going to Russell group universities or/and becoming professionals across a wide spectrum of fields.

Whilst our excellent GCSE results may demonstrate outstanding student learning, at our heart is a focus on every student as an individual and we are proud that we challenge and stimulate each and every student, regardless of ability, in order that they flourish.

Every student matters. We want them to be curious, proud, determined, respectful and reflective learners, so they are well-placed to adapt to life and, eventually, the world of work.

To this end, the three stated multi academy aims for are:

  1. To enhance the opportunities and successes enjoyed by all present and future students and staff.
  2. To develop further Wildern school’s track record of contributing to school improvement, innovation and transformation both within the school, locally within our immediate family of schools and for the wider system as a whole and use this as a model for the new free schools to be opened.
  3. To develop further Wildern schools wider community role and our contribution to opportunities for our stakeholders in our immediate community, particularly in the arts and sport. To ensure the new schools provide the same to their communities

Governance 

The Multi Academy Trust comprises of three tiers of governance oversight, the Members, the Trust Board (Trustees) and the Local Governing Body (LGB) governors. 

Members have the power to appoint or remove Trustees, amend the Articles and receive the accounts.  Members will meet at least once a year, of which one meeting will be the Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

The Trust Board are involved in setting a long-term strategic direction for the school, act a critical friend to the school and ensure that the school is accountable for its actions.  They are responsible for setting policies and objectives, approving the budget and ensuring financial probity, appointing staff and challenging and supporting the Headteacher and Executive Headteacher.  

The Trust Board aims to achieve a balanced group that has the right skills, experience and dynamic for the group to work well and support the Academy in achieving exceptional performance.  

The Trust Board meets once every half term, as do the Finance Committee and Wildern School Local Governing Body.  

There are a number of vacancies on the Trust Board and Local Governing Body at this time, these will be filled as the Trust progress further towards the Multi Academy Trust governance structure.
