Belleville Wix Academy

Our Governance

Effective governance is crucial to the success of schools and academy trusts. The Governance Handbook sets out the key elements of effective governance as:

  • Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy;
  • Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance, and effectively manages risk;
  • People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity;
  • Structures which reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities;
  • Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements; and
  • Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance.


Belleville Wix Academy is part of the Quality First Education (Q1E) Trust. The Q1E Trust is a primary multi academy trust (MAT). It was created by Belleville Primary School in Wandsworth. Belleville Wix Academy joined the Q1E Trust in August 2017. The school also has a local governing body, to whom certain roles and decisions are delegated.
