Who are we?

We currently have a full Governing Body made up of staff, parents, co-opted governors (appointed by the governing body) and governors from the Umbrella Trust. From time to time there may be a vacancy for a parent or individual from the community which would be advised to parents. Nominations would be requested and in the event of more than one nomination the parents would be asked to vote. No previous experience or qualifications are required and governors give their time voluntarily, providing a commitment to helping to raise standards in our schools.
