The Bewbush Academy is an academy part of The Kemnal Academies Trust (TKAT).

TKAT is a multi-academy trust which was established on the 1st September 2010. Its constitution is set out in the Articles of Association and this is shared with individual academies via the Scheme of Delegation. TKAT have, through the Scheme of Delegation, established Local Governing Bodies for each of the Academies. A copy of the latest Scheme of Delegation can be found here.

The Local Governing Body of each of the Academies is responsible for fulfilling the strategic and operational governance role in the conduct of the Academy.
