Governors

Our Academy has a dedicated team of Governors who are actively involved and support all aspects of school life, including joining children on school trips, attending concerts, supporting in class and helping out at fundraising events.

The Academy is managed by the Executive Principal, Academy Principal and Leadership Team with the Academy Governing Board being a 'critical friend' to the Management Team to ensure the Academy has the capacity to improve and raise overall standards.

Please see below for details of our current Governors, their terms of office, attendance at meetings, any specific responsibilities and their roles on the Governing Board and within school. All Governors complete a Register of Interest annually, this can be accessed following the link at the bottom of the page.

All information is also recorded on the Get Information About Schools (GIAS) page as a statutory requirement. Click to follow link or view below: GIAS
