Our Governance is outstanding.

We are fortunate to have an excellent team of Governors drawn from the world of business, finance, education, the armed forces, social and public services and the local community. Governors share a strong commitment to make our school exceptional and provide continual challenge and support to help us be the very best school that we can be.
