School governors are ordinary people from the local community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They are the largest volunteer force in the country and have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting the strategic direction of the School, ensuring accountability, and being the School’s ‘critical friend’.
Almost anyone can become a school governor. All new governors receive training and support. If you are interested in assisting the School in this way, please ask the School Office for further details.
