Our Trustees and Directors

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust was formed from 1st February 2018.

Before then, it was a stand-alone Academy called Bengeworth CE Academy which converted from a LA maintained school on 1st June 2014.

It has now been running for over seven years and is an Exempt Charity with four Signatory Members. The ESFA call these the Members of the Trust.

Below the Members there is a Board of seven charitable Trustees, who run the Trust under company law as Directors, responsible for the financial performance and added educational value that the Multi-Academy Trust provides to its schools. The Directors oversee the company business carried out by Executive Officers and make the strategic decisions for the future direction of the Multi-Academy Trust.

The MAT Board has set up a MAT Finance and Audit Committee and various other statutory and special committees, which report back directly to the Board each half term.

Bengeworth Multi-Academy Trust currently runs two Academies:

BENGEWORTH CE ACADEMY

BRETFORTON VILLAGE SCHOOL

Each Academy within the Trust has a local School Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing the Quality of Education provided for the pupils and community, reporting back as a subcommittee of the Board of Directors.

Both Academies are led by Heads of Schools at each setting, within a Heads Executive Committee which operates collaboratively for the benefit of all the children. They work closely with the Senior Leadership Team and the Directors, sharing the same vision and values. Our Trust is committed to recognising the individual character and context of each school, aligning school efficiency and effectiveness and sharing our collective expertise to get the very best outcomes for pupils and the communities in which they live. Each school is individual, with its own identity and a history rooted within the spirit of the local community.

Please see the next Tab for details of the local School Governors for Bengeworth CE Academy.

DIRECTOR CHANGES:

The company changed name from 1st February 2018 from Bengeworth CE Academy to Bengeworth Mutli-Academy Trust. At that point the Board was reduced from 11 to 7 Directors.

Mr Nigel Smith resigned as a Director from 22.11.2021. There have been no other changes since Bengeworth became a MAT, giving a strong and stable Board for our Multi-Academy Trust, with a very good range of knowledge, backgrounds and a wealth of school experience. They are dedicated, supportive and forward-thinking and have worked (voluntarily) for the schools and the Trust for many years between them.
