The role of a school Governor is to help with the smooth running of the school and ensuring that the school is doing everything it can to provide a safe an nurturing environment for students. Please click on the links under the 'Governors' tab to learn more about our current Governors and how you can become more involved with the Governing body.

Our Governing body is made up of members with different skills, knowledge and experience. The structure of our Governing body is that we have 8 full Governing body meetings per year where we discuss all areas of governance such as finance, curriculum, child protection/safeguarding, training and development etc. rather than having separate committees for each area. Below is a full list of Governors Responsibilities.  Please note, that we do not have sub -committees however, our Governors are responsible for specific areas of governance.
