The Governing Board

The management of the School is headed by the Governing Board that is comprised of elected Parents, Teaching staff, Co-optees and HVT appointees drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, who each occupy a four year term of office. The aim of our Governing Body is to challenge, support and complement the work of our School. EAG Committee meetings (Education Advisory Board) take place in School at least once each half term and are supported by additional Governor visits into School.

Your views are important to us, and we are always happy to hear your suggestions for school improvement. If you would like to pass on a suggestion, or if you are interested in finding out about how you can help our school then our Chair of Governors can be contacted via the School Office for further information.
