Shrewsbury Academy is part of The Marches Academy Trust



Governors work with the Headteacher to ensure the school provides the best opportunities for its students.

Although the Governing body is not responsible for day-to-day decisions and the running of the school, its duties include:

  • setting the Academy’s long-term vision, with the main Trust Board through policies and procedures
  • monitoring school performance
  • holding the school accountable to all stakeholders including staff, the community, parents and students
