All free schools, like other types of Academy, are governed by not-for-profit charitable trusts, which are closely monitored by the Audit Commission to ensure that they provide good value for the public money that they are entrusted with.
In the case of King's School the Governing Body is the Russell Education Trust, a Government-approved academy sponsor, which delegates responsibilities to a local Governing Body representing the community and local churches.
The Local Governing Body includes the Headteacher, two elected parent governors and up to ten further governors appointed by the Trust.
