Meet the Governors

We have twelve governors on our school governing body, plus two associate governors, the headteacher and the clerk. 

The governors work closely with the school leadership team by providing support and challenge and helping to set the strategic direction of the school. They also monitor and evaluate the work of the school and help set priorities for imporvement.

The full governing body meets twice a term.
