Academy Advisory Group

Governance at Spring Common Academy

Spring Common Academy is part of the Horizons Education Trust. The trust has a Trustee’s board who oversees the school. Our school also has a Local Governing Board (known here as the Academy Advisory Group (AAG)).

This group evolved from when the school became an academy. Its overall aim is to have a deep understanding of the school's strengths, area development and to support the Head Teacher to ensure an ambitious vision is achieved.
