West Yorkshire Academy Network Group was formed in 2012 by a group of Business Leaders in Kirklees from a number of schools which academised in 2010-2012.
The majority of members are from Kirklees schools, although Bradford, Leeds and Wakefield are also represented. We are a group of Business Leaders including School Business Managers, Directors of Finance, Operations Directors etc.
We are a small informal group which has remained fairly consistent over the years, and have built up strong supportive and trusting relationships as well as a network to seek and share advice and information.
We meet approximately once a term and our agenda includes updates from the Academies sector including funding, compliance and premises issues. Our next meeting date is 17th September 2019.
