The Board of Governors works with the school's Leadership Team to help determine the strategic direction of the school. Governors also play a key role in school accountability, reviewing the performance of pupils and setting objectives for future school development. The Board of Governors oversees how the school's funding is spent in order to meet those objectives.


The Board of Governors is currently made up of 14 governors: Parent, Co-opted, Local Authority and Staff Governors.

The Board of Governors has adopted a structure which involves it meeting as a full governing body twice a term, avoiding the need to delegate decision to separate committees.

Declaration of Interests

This was done at the September meeting of the Governing Board. No interests were declared in respect of business or financial matters, or in relation to governance roles in other schools.
