The Diocese of
Westminster Academy Trust

Local Governing Board

The Trust has a Strategic Board of Directors who are supported by eleven Local Governing Boards operating under a Scheme of Delegation. The Local Governing Boards are committees of the Strategic Board. Our Local Governing Boards include Foundation Governors appointed by the Bishop, Parent, Staff, and Community Governors.

At the Trusts conception the role of the Local Governing Boards and their work within the local Catholic Community was seen as paramount importance in the structure of the Trust. A clear scheme of delegation within statutory regulations of running a company were created to allow as much local decision making as possible to ensure parents remained at the centre with their children as those with the key responsibility for the education of their child. All of the work undertaken by the Trust and its schools is focused through the Charitable Objectives of the Trust and each director and local governing board makes a commitment to uphold the objectives in undertaking their role.
