The school benefits from an active and committed board of governors. The full governing body meets once a term to consider policies, school performance, staff matters and other issues. A number of sub committees also report back to the full governing body. Please click here to see our official governing body information from the academic year 2015/2016.

More information on our governors can be found on page 1 and page 2 of a letter that was shared with our parents at parents evening.
