The Board of Leigh Academies Trust has a range of powers and responsibilities which it is legally required to carry out, working in a close and balanced partnership with the Chief Executive and Principals, to ensure that the Academy provides the best possible education for all its students.

Detailed work is carried out in two Committees: Academic Standards and Resources which report to the full Trust Board.

The Leigh Academy also has its own local Academy Board which is shared with Dartford Primary Academy (the Leigh Academies Board). The Academy Board is responsible for the governance of the academies under its jurisdiction. The majority of the day-to-day leadership and management is delegated to the Principals of each Academy. The Chair of the Academy Board is represented on the Trust Board to ensure that there is effective and coherent governance.
