Theme of the week is: Risk
The Governing Body, consisting of 16 governors, meets formally once each term, with meetings spread over two evenings of consecutive weeks. The Governors take responsibility for setting a strategic direction, which has seen the student population grow by nearly 100% over 6 years, and for monitoring the performance of the College across a wide range of academic and non-academic targets. They also set the budget and monitor the financial performance.
The Governing Body forms an integral part of a very effective and efficient management team. Close links between Governors and curriculum areas are maintained by the appointment of link Governors in all subject areas (including one for the 6th Form). Links with Adult/Community Education are maintained via the appointment of a co-opted Community Education Governor. Routine business is conducted through formally established Committees, which report back to the main meeting when appropriate.
“As a Governing Body, we strongly support the principles of continuous improvement, and are proud to be part of a dynamic and progressive centre of educational excellence”. Bob Wintringham, Governor.
On this page you will find details of the names and terms of office for all of our Governors, together with details of their category of Governor, positions of responsibility and details of any additional committees that they serve on. We have also included details of the business and financial interests of each Governor and information about any Governance role they play in other schools, as well as a full breakdown of the structure and responsibilities of the governing body of our school and its committees.
Each Governor runs for a 4-year term.
