Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


We have also provided a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues for your information.

All governing bodies are legally constituted and have an Instrument of Government, which sets out their size and representation.  Our governing body is broadly representative of our main stakeholders: the community, the parents, the staff, the local authority, and the church.

Parent and staff governors are elected onto the governing body; the foundation governors are appointed from outside the governing body and community governors are appointed by the governing body itself.  In addition the governing body may also appoint associate members to support its work.

If you are interested in joining our Governing Body please contact the Clerk for information on current vacancies.
