As of the 1st January 2018 the school became part of the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust. At this point, the governing body, in its existing format ceased to exist. A new governing board is currently in the process of being formed. This governing board will oversee three schools, including North Tawton, who have formed a hub as part of the newly formed MAT. The two other schools in the hub are South Tawton and Chagford. The three schools, named THE THREE HARES has one executive headteacher Mrs Underwood.
The new governing board will have responsibility for all three schools and will work with the executive head and three heads of school.
Details of the new governing board and minutes of future meetings will be posted on this page in due course. In the meantime, any questions regarding governance of the school should be directed to the trustees of the MAT.
