The school is situated on an extensive, beautiful site offering purpose built facilities. 

    What we need:

    We are seeking to recruit a Community Governor.  This would be someone from the local community preferably with a background in charity law, finance, business or leadership to support the Academy in its strategic development.  This is an exciting time to join the Academy and the role provides an opportunity to support its improvement and make a difference.

    Our Governors work together to carry out their core functions:

    1. ensuring there is clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
    2. holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff
    3. overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent
    4. ensuring the voices of stakeholders are heard

    Governors must also ensure that the governing body complies with all legal and statutory requirements. 

    Governing body strategic responsibilities

    The Governing Body works closely with the Head Teacher and senior leaders. The Head Teacher is responsible for the day to day management of the Academy whereas the role of the governing body is strategic.

    Monitoring and evaluating school performance

    Governors must monitor the priorities that have been set to ensure progress is being made.

    A full induction and training programme are provided.
