Transparency and Public Scrutiny
As a multi-academy trust, we have to produce annual audited accounts and publish them. This year we have been involved in supporting the process for finalising and submitting the accounts for 4 separate Trusts because accounts had to be produced for the 2016-17 academic year for the Olympus Academy Trust as well as closing accounts for Fusion Schools Trust (Patchway’s previous Trust before joining OAT), accounts for the Ridings’ Federation of Academies (Winterbourne’s current Trust until it joins OAT) and we have also been providing support with managing the finances for Bristol Technology and Engineering Academy.
I am pleased to report that all the accounts were completed, audited and submitted before the deadline at the end of December. This is an amazing achievement given the complexity across these organisations and is due to the excellent work and expertise of our Finance Team.
The accounts will now be uploaded to each school/Trust’s website in the next few days so that you can look at the details if you are interested.
With best wishes,
CEO, The Olympus Academy Trust
