Governing Body

The quality of governance is excellent…excellent governance ensures that the school continues to make progress. Governors provide good oversight of areas where they have legal responsibilities. They have overseen a continual improvement in staffing, accommodation and resources.

The governing body is run with vision and ambition, a contributing factor in the continual development and improvement of the school. The core ‘flag values’ of the school are at the heart of this vision.
