Governors are not expected to be experts in the field of education. The most important requirements are an interest in the school and the welfare and education of its students, and the time and willingness to get involved.
Newly-appointed Governors will receive induction training, and mentoring support from one of our more experienced Governors, and all Governors have access to on-going training opportunities to help develop their knowledge and skills as a Governor.
You will be the sort of person who can build relationships with people, work as part of a team, and have the confidence to ask questions and
