The Twyford Trust is governed by a Board of Directors which is made up of Church of England representatives, the chairs of school governing bodies, elected staff representatives, elected parent representatives and the Executive Head Teacher. The Directors appoint people who are locally based to serve on the Local Governing Body for each School in the Trust.
The Ada Lovelace Governing Body met for the first time in December 2017 and is made up of local Church of England representatives, co-opted Governors, a Directors representative and the Executive and Associate Head Teachers.
