Meet the Governors

The Governing Body of our school comprises of members of the local community, staff at local educational establishments and our own teaching staff. It is an unpaid role, ensuring that policies and desisions are properly checked. Much of the business of the school Governing Body takes place through committees. Governors are also linked to subject areas. The Governing Body meets at least once each term as do the committees.
