‘Together for Excellence’


Our Governors

Welcome to the Governor's Section.


The governors are responsible for key decisions towards the school, working in partnership with the Local Authority and school itself. The Governing Body has a responsibility for the strategic direction of the school, monitoring progress against school improvement priorities, evaluating school performance, and ensuring that the school meets all of its statutory requirements. Our governors are actively involved in school life, supporting the school's vision, the work it undertakes, and they are active members of the school community. Our committees and Full Governing Body meet half termly to review school progress and performance. The clerk to the governors, or the chair of governors can be contacted via the school office.
