 Thinking of becoming a Governor?

All Governors are volunteers and do not receive any payment for their work, however, they do play a vital role in the running of the school.  Being a Governor is demanding and challenging but extremely rewarding and interesting.  Please see the document “What do governors do?” for further information. The term of office is usually four years but Governors may be reappointed/re-elected.  

If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please contact either the Headteacher or Chair of Governors via the school office.
