School governors, together with the headteacher, are responsible for the overall educational and financial health of the school.


They are all unpaid volunteers who meet regularly (at least twice a term) to discuss and decide upon all aspects of school activities such as appointing staff, monitoring the budget, maintaining the premises and reviewing the curriculum. The governing body is a legal entity, and governors execute their individual responsibilities collectively.


If you would like to contact the governors, you can do so confidentially through school. Please click on the link button below for a full list of governors for this school year.


Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a school governor.
