Governor Access: The College has a governing body of 20 governors which oversees the development of the school. Governors are volunteers and represent parents, the local community, staff and the local authority. The Board of Governors is responsible for the conduct of the college and is accountable for ensuring high standards of achievement for its pupils. Governors have three core functions:
- Setting the college vision, ethos and strategic direction
- Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the college and its pupils
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that its money is well spent.

A parent governor is a mother, father or carer of a pupil attending the college and who is elected by the parents/carers of the college to give a parental perspective in discussions and decisions.
In addition Parent Governors will have a range of skills or knowledge that will help them to contribute effectively to the work of the Board of Governors. No single governor is expected to know everything about education - they are part of a body of 20 governors that has the combined experience, knowledge, skills and commitment to work together.
Being a governor is a thinking and questioning role - the Principal and staff are employed to run the college. However, being a governor is a great chance to take an active role in shaping the future of the college future and bettering the outcomes for all the pupils within the school.
