Governing Body Structure

Full Governing Body Structure 2017/18

The Governing Body currently does not operate a committee structure.  Most decisions are taken by the full Governing Body, with committees formed as and when appropriate to address specific issues.  For details of any governors who served last academic year and whose term of office has now ended please see attendance register page.


All our governors agree to adopt and adhere to a Code of Conduct, full details of which can be found here

We are always keen to hear from individuals who have an interest in becoming a governor.  If you would like to speak to someone about opportunities which may be available or would like to find out more information please contact Helen Flesher, Chair of Governors by emailing, marking your email for the attention of the Chair of Governors.
