Academy trust AGMs: guidance and agenda

Key considerations and a model agenda to help governance professionals plan academy trust AGMs.


NGA recommends that all academy trusts hold an annual general meeting (AGM). Most articles of association make this a requirement.

AGMs help trust members to ensure transparency, accountability, and sufficient scrutiny of the trust’s governance. They are a key opportunity for members to hear from the trust board and CEO about progress made during the year and plans for the future.

Our AGM guide for governance professionals covers:

  • the purpose of academy trust AGMs
  • when you should hold your AGM
  • what to include on the agenda (including a template agenda)
  • whether or not your AGM can be virtual
  • who should attend and chair
  • the quorum for AGMs
  • how voting works at AGMs
