We are currently looking for new co-opted governors to join our friendly governing body.

Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the children in our school. The school would welcome those who can contribute to the leadership of the school as a community, but who can also assist the charitable trust in the management of the schools finances, with education law, employment law and those who have extensive experience in leadership positions within business.
