Governor Recruitment


Volunteering as a school governor is a great way to connect with your local community. You don’t need to be a parent or have experience of education – our governors come from a wide range of backgrounds. Our Governor Profiles give you an idea of this range, from banking to gardening, engineering to social care. They would all recommend being a governor to family or friends. The satisfaction of seeing children benefit from decisions you have made is rewarding and empowering.

Being a governor is a commitment and we want to make sure volunteers know as much as possible before making the decision to come on board. One of our existing governors would love to meet you for an informal chat about the work of the governing board and what you could bring to it.
