How to Become a Governor

The first question to ask yourself is, “Are you interested in the education, welfare and opportunities provided for children and young people? ”
If the answer to this first question is, “Yes”, then have you got enthusiasm and time to spare? If so, you could consider volunteering as a school governor.

Governors give their service voluntarily and no formal qualifications are necessary although there are eligibility criteria.
Governors are ordinary people, aged over 18, with a special commitment to the education and well-being of children.
Terms of office will be a minimum of one to a maximum of four years.

There are typically four types of Governors:

  • Staff Governors
  • Parent Governors
  • Co-opted Governors
  • Local Authority Governors

Please speak to Mr Ames or any of our governing body for more information regarding becoming a governor. Alternatively you could use this very useful link to the NGA (National Governors’ Association).
Governors can be contacted through the school office.
