Accounts and Annual Reports

The Governing Body of Mark Rutherford School decided to convert to a standalone academy on 1st January 2013.  This followed significant staff and parent/carer consultation, comparison with other schools locally, regionally and nationally who had converted, extensive consideration and debate by the Governing Body and a great deal of work by Business Support Staff to secure academy status.

One of the requirements of an academy is that it is overseen by a Trust.  This is called the Mark Rutherford Trust and is a company limited by guarantee with four named Directors or Trustees who are bound by Articles of Association.

Chair of Governors: Mr John Warehand
