As governors we are there to develop a long-term strategic direction to how the school is run; be critical friends; ensure the school is accountable for its actions, and make sure that it operates effectively in the interests of its pupils, parents and other stakeholders. Governors are volunteers and give their time willingly to support the work of the school.

The full Governing Body meets once per term. There are also 2 sub-committees: Resources and Management and Quality and Standards. These sub-committees also meet termly. We usually meet between 5pm and 7pm on a Thursday.
