The Governing Body

As the governing body of the school we are responsible for the strategic management of the school and make decisions about a wide range of issues.

The governing body is split in to a small number of committees, each responsible for one area such as finance or health and safety. These committees meet separately from the main governing body to discuss relevant issues in more detail. Discussion is then fed back at a full governing body meeting.
