Richmond West Schools Trust
From September 2016, Hampton High and Twickenham Academy joined The Richmond West Schools Trust. This is a multi-academy trust led by Waldegrave School and Teddington School. This trust was established in order to provide new governance for Hampton High and Twickenham Academy.
The vision of the trust is that all schools are good or outstanding by 2019.
The trust brings together four local schools in order to ensure high standards of education and a focus on Teaching, Learning and Leadership for the local community shared by these schools. Led by the Executive Headteachers of Teddington School and Waldegrave School, the trust provides the systems and structures needed to ensure the success of all of the schools.
Each school in the trust has its own distinct identity and ethos. They each have their own vision, values and mission statements. They are united in a common belief in the strength of community education and the desire to ensure the entire community has access to the same high standards of education in the individual settings of each school.
The governance structure of RWST comprises the Board of Trustees and a Local Governing Body for each of the schools in the trust. More information on how this works is contained in the Scheme of Delegation.
The Richmond West Schools Trust (RWST) is a Private Limited Company, it is a not-for-profit charitable organisation with Business Classification of "General Secondary Education".
