Governors

The Governors are volunteers, directors of the Company and trustees of the Charity. Their role is to ensure that the school complies with legislation and to safeguard the continuity of the school. In reality, they are more hands-on than that, and they are often at the school to assist the Headmaster and the leadership team with their particular expertise. Most are parents of former pupils of the school.
