The Governing Body carries the overall responsibility for the running of the school.  It delegates most of this responsibility to the headteacher and then holds him to account to ensure the students of the school are getting the education they deserve.  The Governors are responsible for the strategic direction of the school and for ensuring that the school provides good value for money.

If you would like to find out more about the role of the Governing Body or would like to enquire about becoming a Governor in the future, then please contact the clerk or the Head.
