Governance: School Trust

Free schools, like Academies, are governed by a not-for-profit trust, in this case the RET Becket Keys CofE Free School Trust. The RET Becket Keys CofE Free School Trust is a sub-trust of RET. The Trust members appoint Directors to govern the school. This group of directors operates in very much the same way as a maintained school governing body and take responsibility for the strategic leadership, management and accountability of the school. The school's Headteacher and senior leadership team report to them and their sub-committees on a termly basis. The majority of the trust are practising communicant Christians.
