AKS is a member of United Learning. The group is an educational charity, which was founded in 1883 with the specific purpose of providing for pupils a sound education based on and inspired by Christian principles.

As well as AKS, other independent schools within the Group include Ashford School, Bournemouth Collegiate School, Caterham School, Guildford High School, Hampshire Collegiate School, Hull Collegiate School, Lincoln Minster School, Rowan Preparatory School, Sunderland High School and Surbiton High School.

AKS is a locally managed school with its own Local Governing Body. Angela Crowe chairs the central Council  on which the Chair of the Local Governing Body and Mrs Marjorie Towers represent the School. Therefore, whilst it remains very much a "local" school, AKS benefits from its partnership with the schools in the group.

The Chairman of the Local Governing Body, Mr Chris Dickson, can be contacted at:

AKS Lytham, Clifton Drive, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 1DT
