How is Cadmus Different?
Although we are a federation and as such are a group of schools with a single governing body, our unique structure ensures that each school remains autonomous.
Each school has a local governing board composed of representatives from parents, the local community, and staff of each school as well as local authority governors and co-opted Governors.
All school-level strategic and financial decisions are delegated to the local governing boards so each school within Cadmus Family of Schools retains its own individuality and autonomy.
All Governors are members of the Cadmus Council of Governors.
