Connected Organisations

The Academy’s co-sponsors, David and Anne Crossland and the Church of England, have previously made equal financial contributions to the Academy in terms of the Endowment Fund totalling £375k.  Both co-sponsors made further equally shared financial commitments up to 2020.  A total sum of £131,250 was received from the co-sponsors and Endowment Fund earnings in 2017/18.  Of this sum, £75,000 related to specific purchases agreed by the Governing Board. £56,250 related to the agreed schedule of remaining annual payments of which £45,000 has been deferred to 2018/19.

The co-sponsors have representation on the Academy Governing Board at both Governing Board and Committee level and, as such, provide an important contribution to the success of the Academy.

In relation to the business activities of the Academy Trust, Manchester Diocese is considered to be a connected organisation.  An annual subscription is paid to Manchester Diocese in order for the Academy to access services and resources available to all Church of England Schools within the Diocese through a Service Level Agreement.  At £1,536 (renewed in April 2018) this is considered to represent value for money for the Academy and is only available through Manchester Diocese.
