Governing Body Structure
The day to day running of each school is managed by the head teachers, and the strategic direction is overseen by the governing body. Governors can be parents, ex parents, members of the local community and are joined by the head teachers, elected staff and other members of staff depending on the meeting agenda.
Full Governing Body
This is a collaboration of the two schools' governing bodies, which delegates to three committees meeting twice each term. Committees focus on specific areas of the schools' strategic plans. Within the committees there are various link governors, who work in greater depth in an area and provide an additional layer of challenge. Each committee is responsible for overseeing policies relevant to their area of responsibility.
