“The governing body is forward-thinking in its approach to governance.” Ofsted March 2017

The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher in the management and leadership of the school to ensure that the school continues to maintain its high standards as well as improve and develop further. The full Governing Body meets twice each term, with additional meetings for committees.
