Governance

We are a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) and approved sponsor.  Currently, there are three schools in the Trust – the founding school, Chesham Grammar School,  Ivingswood Academy and Waterside Primary Academy, primary schools that are also in Chesham. The Trust is a Company Limited by Guarantee.

The Members of the Trust are responsible for appointing up to 5 Trustees to the Trust Board and also receive the annual accounts each autumn. They meet at least once per year.

The Members of RKST are:

Current Trustees

The Trustees meet at least twice per term and are responsible for the strategic direction, broad policy framework and oversight of the Trust and all the schools within it.  They take decisions that are in the best interests of the Trust as a whole rather than acting as representatives of a particular school within the Trust.  Trustees are Directors of the Trust.
