Message from the Chair of Governors

Governors meet on a regular basis to discuss progress of the school and to consider new policies and regulations that need to be introduced. A number of Governors have specific responsibilities in a particular area or department within school and they will visit their respective area/department and report to the Full Governors on a termly basis. Governors also play an active role in school celebrations and performances
