When Do We Meet?

The full governing body meets 4 times each school year to approve policies, receive reports from each subcommittee, review the progress of the school and when required make decisions on its future direction.

In addition governors attend one of the specialist committees (Curriculum, Finance & Personnel, Sites & Buildings) where the ‘groundwork’, research and discussion on key issues occurs.
