Ormiston Trust, OAT’s sponsor Trust is a charity and grant-making trust dedicated to improving the life chances of children and young people who face disadvantage.
Ormiston Trust (OT) was founded by Peter Murray in 1969 in memory of his sister Fiona Ormiston Murray.
In 2006 the Trust became an academy sponsor, aiming to increase educational opportunity for all young people and to narrow the attainment gap. Through its subsidiary, Ormiston Academies Trust, OT is now responsible for a network of primary and secondary schools across the country from Grimsby to the Isle of Wight. Work in Ormiston academies is underpinned by a set of shared values including a commitment to parental and community engagement.
OAT is a charitable voluntary organisation which relies on the valuable input of a considerable number of non-executive volunteers, supported by an experienced team of staff. OAT is a relatively large Multi-Academy Trust that covers a sizeable geographical area. The Trust have been moving towards a more regional model of governance in order to better support school improvement.
In the OAT governance model, each academy is ultimately governed by the Board of Trustees. Ormiston Academies Trust will establish for each academy, a Local Governing Body. Local governance is delivered through these Local Governing Bodies, who are made up of staff, parents, local community members and a trust representative. National Governance is set by the Board of Trustees and delivered through the National Executive Team and the Regional Directors, on behalf of the Board.
