Governing Board Vacancies

The Governing Board currently has the following vacancies:

  • Two vacancies for Foundation Governors. Foundation Governors have particular responsibility for upholding the Christian ethos of the school.
  • One vacancy for a Parent Governor. Parent Governor elections will be run to fill this role in the Autumn Term 2023 to allow parents/carers joining the school community for the new school year to consider nominating themselves. 
  • One vacancy for a Staff Governor - elections will be held in school this term (Autumn 2023) to fill this position.

The Board is keen to recruit people who have experience of working strategically within any sector. It is useful to the Board to recruit people who have skills or experience related to Education but this is not essential. If you would like more information on becoming a governor, please contact the Clerk to Governors, Jacqueline Brooks, at

The Governing Board is also able to appoint Associate Members on the basis of the specific skills and experience they can bring. Associate Members do not have a vote at Full Governing Board meetings and there are some restrictions on the roles they can carry out within the Board.

Please email the Clerk to Governors at for further information if you would be interested in supporting the work of the Governing Board through becoming an Associate Member.
