How to become a governor

If you are interested in becoming a governor, please call the Academy for further information. When there is a vacancy for a parent governor all parents will be informed, and you will have a chance to stand for election.

Before you put yourself forward, please talk to your employer. Many employers recognise the role of school governor as useful work experience and may offer paid leave as part of their initiative to give back to the community.

Be the BEST - become the LEADERS of tomorrow!

Respect:

We are well behaved and considerate to all staff and students in our learning community.

Ambition

We are hard working and have an ambitious attitude to succeed and achieve.

Responsibility

We take ownership and act with
integrity; we always do the right thing.
