Governance

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding, promoting the welfare of children and equality of opportunity for all and expects all staff to share this commitment.

Our School Governors are people who wish to make a positive contribution to the education of our girls.
They work in partnership with the Headteacher and other school staff to promote high standards of educational achievement at the school.

They are primarily responsible and accountable for all major decisions about the school and its future, and ensure that the school is accountable to those it serves.
