Governing Board

The Governing Board is responsible for driving the strategic direction of the school. The dynamic and experienced board members review the progress of the school in all aspects, take decisions and plan strategic developments to improve the quality of education. The Board meets regularly to ensure that the school is achieving the set targets and is delivering its commitment to all stakeholders.


Governors work as a team. They are responsible for making sure the school provides a good quality education for all students. Raising educational standards in school is a key priority for the Governing Board.


Governors promote effective ways of teaching and learning when setting the school aims and policies. They do this together with the Principal, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. The Principal is accountable to the Board of Governors.

The Governing Board:

  • Is accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community;
  • Plans the school's future direction;
  • Selects the Principal;
  • Makes strategic decisions on the school's budget and staffing including the performance management policy;
  • Ensures that the curriculum delivered effectively;
  • Ensures that the school provides for all its students including those with special needs.

Governors are at the heart of how a school operates. It is important they get things right: how they do their job affects the interests of students, staff and the reputation of the school in the community. Governors support and challenge the Principal by gathering views, asking questions and discussing what is best for the school. The Governing Board will be prepared to give and take advice and will adhere to decisions taken by the Board as a whole.
