We recognise just how vital the role of Governors and Trustees has become in raising standards.

“Being a school governor or trustee is a challenging but hugely rewarding role.  It will give you the chance to make a real difference to young people, give something back to your local community and use and develop your skills in a board-level environment”            National Governors Association (NGA)   

What Governors Do?
Governors make a difference. Governors are volunteers who work in partnership with the Head of School and the Leadership Team to ensure that children receive the best education possible.  And it is more than having something that looks good on a CV. You have to put some time in. The exact amount of time depends on the particular circumstances of your school. It needn't be daunting and it can be an interesting and rewarding experience.

Governors represent the largest volunteer group in the UK and are selected from a variety of backgrounds to reflect the many interest groups within school.
