Kensworth CE Academy

With God by our side, we can move mountains


Kensworth CE Academy  joined the Diocese of St Albans Multi Academy Trust (DSAMAT) on 1st August 2017.

DSAMAT was founded by the Diocese of St Albans, and is a Trust working with schools across Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.  The DSAMAT community has a strong commitment to a shared mission.

Enabling all to flourish: Rooted in God’s Love

This is underpinned by our shared values:

Hope, nurture, collaboration, equality, respect

Our Trust is governed by a range of bodies. Members have strategic oversight for the work of the Trust, include representatives from the Diocesan Board of Finance and Diocesan Board of Education and reflect the range of skills required to oversee an Academy Trust.  Directors of the Trust are appointed by the Members and are responsible for the day-to-day running of the Trust.  The academies are accountable to the Directors who make strategic decisions impacting them.

Regional Hub Boards and Local Governing Boards

Individual academies are governed at a local level either by their own Local Governing Board (LGB), or by a Regional Hub Board (RHB).  RHBs govern a number of academies within a geographical footprint.  RHBs and LGBs have the same level of delegated responsibility from the Directors.
