Organisation and management
The Governors generally meet three times a year for routine matters and also for one full day together to discuss the Governors’ and Head’s vision for the school. This provides an opportunity to hear about, examine and develop College-wide issues for which there would be insufficient time at the regular termly meetings. These meetings also provide the opportunity for other members of the school staff to make presentations to the Governors.
There are, in addition, three permanent sub-committees that meet at least once a term:
- Finance and Infrastructure
- Fund Raising
- Safeguarding, Education and Pastoral
New Governors are inducted into the workings of the College, both as a company and as a charity, by being invited to attend all of the sub-committee meetings, as well as the Board meetings, in their first year of appointment. In addition, they are provided with guidance from both AGBIS (Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools) and ISC (Independent Schools Council) and are given the opportunity to attend relevant training courses.
