Statutory Information

Financial Statements

The Annual Report and Financial Statements for The Howard Academy Trust are published yearly on completion of an external audit. 

The latest audited accounts are available below for the year ending 31 August 2023.

Gender Pay Gap

The Howard Academy Trust are required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

The Trust have carried out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing individual employee’s data.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website. 

We can use these results to assess:

  • the levels of gender equality in our workplace
  • the balance of male and female employees at different levels
  • how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded.

The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any gender pay gap.

Executive Pay

Where the academy trust has entered into an off-payroll arrangement with someone who is not an employee the amount paid by the trust for that person’s work for the trust must also be included in the website disclosure where payment exceeds £100k as if they were an employee
