Local Governing Body and MAT

Multi-Academy Trust

Chatten Free School is proud to be part of the Hope Learning community.  We are therefore overseen in many respects by a fantastic Board of Trustees and by Executive Head Gary Smith (OBE).  To understand more clearly how the trust oversees Chatten Free School and our LGB please visit the trust website where you can see the scheme of delegation.
