Governing Body

The MCMA Governing body plays a critical role in providing support and effective challenge to school leadership. By doing this the governing body is able to play a critical role in the improvement of the Academy. The Governing body of the Academy meets half-termly, however, in between these meetings, sub-committees also meet which focus on other areas of school life.
Our Governors bring different areas of expertise to the academy and are all passionate about the success of the academy and work to secure the academy’s vision of excellence and high aspirations in order that all our pupils can achieve excellence in all they do and can go on to lead happy and successful lives.
