Governors

Governing Body

The Governing Body is made up of sixteen governors and has three main roles:

  • Strategic- setting the general direction of the school 
  • Critical Friend- working together with the Headteacher creating a clear understanding of the challenges faced in managing a school
  • Accountability- the Governing body must have a professional attitude and use its collective skills to benefit the learners.  It must gather and decide what is best for the school.

The governors meet, as a full group, at least once a term and more often in committees - there are currently three committees: 

  • Curriculum and Monitoring
  • Finance, Personnel and Premises
  • Audit
