Governors

We have a committed team of governors who come from within the local community and bring a range of skills and expertise to the role.  They have an important part to play in raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and monitoring and evaluating school performance.  Governors and their roles can be found below:
