Pickhurst Academy is part of the Chancery Education Trust.

The Trust operates as a multi-academy Trust with clear lines of decision-making for the organisation as a whole. The Board of Directors has responsibility for all schools within the Trust and all Committees are required to report to the Main Board.

The Board of Directors and each of its Committees normally meet once each term. The Board has established an overall framework for the governance of the Trust and determines membership, terms of reference and procedures of committees and other groups. It receives reports, including policies from its committees for ratification. It monitors the activities of the committees through reports from the Committee Chairs and through the minutes of their meetings

The minutes of Pickhurst Academy meetings and the Trust Board are available to view – please contact the Trust Administrator on Tel No: 020 8462 5867 Option 3 or via email:
