Local Governing Body

Following the transfer of the academy to the Mulberry Schools Trust on the 1st September 2018, a new Local Governing Body (LGB) was constituted.

The LGB is responsible for the oversight of Mulberry Academy Shoreditch and for the implementation of the Trust’s policies and strategy. The LGB is chaired by a trustee so that information flows consistently between the Board and the LGB.  You can read more about the Mulberry Schools Trust, the board of trustees, its policies and the shared work between schools by following the links at the end of this page.
