Meet our Governors

The Governors have a major role in the leadership and management of the school.  They are expected to act as the school’s critical friend: being accountable for the use of public money.  The Governors monitor the performance of the school, the budget and the condition of the building.  The Chair of Governors is John Harvey.  The Governors are organised into smaller sub-committees who meet regularly:

 

  • Finance
  • Pay & Personnel
  • Health & Safety / Building & Premises
  • The Curriculum
  • Performance Management

 

The full Governing Body meets every half term and the sub-committees meet every term.  Richard Gilson is the Chair of Governors and Karen Bull is the Vice Chair of Governors.

The present Staff Governors are Ruth De Almeida and Caroline Leah.  Rebecca Ryan is an associate Governor.
