Meet our Governors

Trinity School Governors ensure the effective and successful leadership and governance of Trinity School.

Trinity School has received extensive support from 30 local churches of different traditions. In January 2013, these churches founded a new body called ‘Sevenoaks Churches Educational Trust’ (also known as SCET) to oversee the organisation and leadership of Trinity School. SCET is chaired by Revd James Oakley, who is the Rector of the Parish of Kemsing and Woodlands. The main role of SCET is to appoint foundation governors to ensure the effective and successful leadership and governance of Trinity School.
