How to become a Governor

There are three types of governor; staff, community and parent governors. When vacancies arise on the governing body for a member the opportunity will be advertised to people eligible for the position (i.e. all parents will receive a letter about a parent governor vacancy). The process of election for each position will be outlined at the point the vacancy arises.

We are currently looking for two community governors to join our governing body. If you are interested please click on the link below to download an application form.
