The Board of Trustees operate as the company directors of The Mount Camphill Community Limited (Registered number 1004194) and trustees of the charity (Registered number 307027).

The Board generally has between 6 and 9 members at any time, drawn from members of the local community, past and present parents, and people working in anthroposophical establishments with similar aims to The Mount.

They meet at least 4 times per year providing strategic direction, and are responsible for ensuring activities and operations meet the charity’s objectives, and are carried out in accordance with the current legislative framework. Day to day management is delegated to the Community via the Co-ordinator’s Group.

Each trustee is assigned a critical area of operations to hold specific responsibility for, these include Ofsted and educational services, Finance and audit, CQC compliance, Safeguarding children and adults at risk, Staff development, Recruitment & selection, Supervision & appraisal, Business development and Training.

Alongside the Board of trustees works the Association of members of The Mount Camphill Community who are responsible for electing (or ratifying if temporarily co-opted) trustees, approving the annual accounts, appointing auditors and who work together to inform the future direction of The Mount. These individuals share a commitment to the aims, ideals, principles and future of the Community.

As a residential community The Mount is regulated and inspected by the Care Quality Commission, and as an education provider is inspected by Ofsted.


The Mount is led by a Management Group of 6 experienced professionals, covering the areas of Education, Care and Support and Resource Management. This group reports directly to the Board of Trustees.

The Mount is a member of the Association of National Specialist Colleges (Natspec).
