The school converted to academy status in September 2015. The school is sponsored by the Queen Katherine Multi-Academy Trust. There is also a local governing body. There has been significant turbulence in the senior leadership of the school since it opened. The current headteacher took up post in June 2015. The current senior leadership team is comprised of the headteacher and two acting assistant headteachers. A new substantive leadership team has been appointed from September 2018. The school receives support from a national leader of education.
