Harriers Advisory Committee
In addition to the formal governance framework, the Academy has a local advisory forum called the Harriers Advisory Committee (HAC). While it is not part of the formal governance of the Academy, the forum provides a means for members to better understand the functioning of the Academy and identify matters they would like to have considered by the Regional Board.
The HAC will be formed mainly from parents of pupils at the Academy and may be supplemented by members from the wider community, co-opted by the Principal.
