Welcome from the Chair of the Governing Board

Welcome to our learning community here on the Isle of Wight.

Our aim is simple: We want to be the best. The best for students, the best for parents, the best for staff who work here and the best for the Island.

The task of the governing board is to govern the schools through the implementation of three core functions:
• ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
• holding the Executive Headteacher and Heads of Schools to account for the educational performance of the students
• overseeing the financial performance of the schools

Our schools are on a journey of improvement and we are proud of the work undertaken so far to ensure the most successful futures for our students.

We are always keen to welcome new members to the governing board, so if you think you might be interested in joining us, please read on and get in contact with us if you would like any more information.
