We are very fortunate to have a committed and dedicated team of governors. Their role is crucial in the development of our school.


The law states that the purpose of governing bodies in our type of school, is to 'conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school' (Section 21(2) Education Act 2002).


In practice this means governors have six core functions:


  1. Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy

  2. Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance

  3. People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity

  4. Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities

  5. Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements

  6. Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance


Please find below details of our Governing body, including the names, categories, responsibilities for each Governor.
