Welcome to the Governance section of our website

I am pleased to introduce the board of trustees for All Saints Multi Academy Trust Birmingham. We are a varied and committed group of trustees serving the MAT. We are all volunteers, and we represent all sections of the school community. Each trustee makes a commitment of time, experience and expertise in order to support continuous improvement across the MAT for the benefit of all the children.

Look out for us at school events throughout the year, we look forward to meeting you.
