REAch2 now has over 55 schools and is organised into 4 regions.  Our school is part of the South Central region.

Schools in the Region:

Croydon: Robert Fitzroy Academy, Aerodrome Academy, St Mark’s Academy

Kent: Milton Court Academy, Copperfield Academy, Tymberwood Academy

Bexley: Brampton Primary Academy

Sussex: Eastbrook Academy, WhiteMeadows Academy, The Globe Academy

All of our schools share the same governance structure and you find information about the Trust on the REAch2 website at


As part of the REAch2 Trust, detailed information regarding governance can be found on the REAch2 website:


This page gives details of how the Trust is organised including the Articles of Association, the Master Funding Agreement and all the documents which relate to how the Trust was founded and how it runs today.  You can also find details of who our Trustees are.

Andrew Rigby is the Regional Director for the REAch2 South Central region.

Lucy Ellis is the Deputy Regional Director for the REAch2 South Central region.

Paul Voural is the Associate School Leader for the REAch2 South Central region.

Our school, like all the schools in the Trust, has a local governing body (LGB).  There is a scheme of delegation which details how the LGB should work.  The LGB hold meetings during the year in which they help to support the school, its leadership and pupils whilst challenging to make sure that everyone achieves as much progress as they should.

The LGB also works alongside a regional board where region-wide issues are discussed.  The Regional Board is made up of volunteers, just like an LGB, with Headteachers and Chairs of Governors.  There is also a team of regional officers, led by the Regional Director.  They provide  support to the schools in finance, HR, Estates and Governance.

Prior to September 2017, the Governing Body at Kemsley worked for the Federation overseeing the work of both Kemsley and Milton Court and acting in a critical friend capacity to ensure that the children of both schools receive the very best education possible.  From September 2017, the Federated Governing Body ceased to be in place due to the restructure of the leadership team resulting in a substantive Head teacher at both Kemsley and Milton Court and no Executive Headteacher.

Our clerk is Mrs T Rose.
