Caring Brings Success

Board of Governors

As a result of the 1989 Education Reform Order, Governors have been given responsibility for the overall management of the school.


“The role of the Board of Governors is to manage the school with a view to providing the best possible education and educational opportunities for all of the pupils.  This involves:

  • setting the strategic direction for the school;
  • taking corporate decisions in relation to the statutory functions of the board of governors”.
