  • Progress and achievement for all pupils at the school

Committees and Faculty Links

As well as attending meetings of the Full Governing Body some Governors also attend Committee Meetings and meet with members of the Faculties within the school. The structure of the Governing Body Committee system was recently revised so that we now have a Business Management Committee in addition to the Full Governors Meetings. Details of membership of the Business Management Committee, Faculty Links and links to specific areas of interest in the development of the school can be found on the 'Current Governors' page.
