The Governors have a general responsibility for the effective management of the School, but they are not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the School – that is the role of the Head. They are responsible for the curriculum and conduct of the School; managing the budget; staffing; discipline and attendance.

Governors’ Meetings are held regularly and at least once a term to consider a variety of items affecting the School and to receive reports from the Head concerning the conduct, finance and curriculum of the School.
