The Inspire Learning Partnership

 Members of the Trust

The Inspire Learning Partnership has “Members” who are best viewed as guardians of the constitution, changing the Articles if necessary and ensuring the charitable object is fulfilled. The Members appoint some of the Trustees and can exercise reserve powers to appoint and remove Trustees. It is, however, anticipated that this power will rarely, if ever, be exercised. The Academy Trust will ordinarily have at least five Members.
