As an academy, Outwoods Edge is both a charity and a limited company.  There is a board of governors who are responsible for ensuring the school is successful.  They are also the Board of Trustees in charity law and the Board of Directors in company law.

All members of the board serve for four years, except the Headteacher and Deputy Head, who are appointed ex officio.

The board is currently composed as follows:
