Meet

The governing body is made up of volunteers who represent the school community (Parent and Staff governors), the wider community (Co-opted governors) and the local authority (Local Authority governors). Governors are matched to committees and linked to a particular school phase or section of our school improvement plan according to their skills and experience.
