About Confederation

The Confederation of School Trusts (CST) is the national organisation and sector body for school trusts in England advocating for, connecting and supporting executive and governance leaders. It is a charity and the only ‘not for profit’ national school membership organisation that expressly represents the interests and views of all self-governing schools. Confederation of School Trusts promotes autonomy for schools enabling them to raise standards for students, believing that autonomous schools are the best vehicle to support creative leadership and school strategies that respond to the needs of the local community. It believes that this is the best way to raise standards. Members include CEOs, headteachers, governors, clerks to governors, school business managers and directors.
