Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

What Do Governors Do?

The Governing Body has responsibility for:

  • determining and setting the aims and objectives of the school
  • setting up a strategic framework for the school
  • setting policies and targets for achieving the objectives
  • monitoring and keeping under review the broad policies, plans and procedures within which the school operates
  • acting as a ‘critical friend’ to provide support, challenge and advice, using its professional knowledge to benefit students and staff
  • ensuring local accountability
  • ensuring that the best interests of all students are considered in decision-making.

How Do They Do This?

The full Governing Body meets once each term. A range of subcommittees advises the full Governing Body on specific issues and these meet usually every half term. On some occasions these committee meetings are open to all governors either to provide training or to give a greater understanding of key strategies being implemented in the school.

These subcommittees include:

  • Finance and Buildings
  • Curriculum and Quality Assurance
  • Safeguarding and Pupil Wellbeing
  • Personnel
  • Pay
  • Exclusions
  • Complaints
  • Appointments
  • Disciplinary

Anyone who might be interested in becoming a governor of the school should contact the Headteacher or the Chair of Governors.
