Good governance in any sector needs the right leaders in the boardroom

Dr Margaret Mountford, Chair of Governors,
Marylebone Boys School and former adviser on The Apprentice

Good governance in any sector needs the right leaders in the boardroom. A well-run academy trust helps the next generation to thrive and more volunteers are needed across the country to step forward as academy board members. I have seen first-hand the difference good schools and good trusts make and I am delighted to work with the Academy Ambassadors programme to ensure talented British business leaders have the opportunity to join academy trust boards.
