How to apply
Every governor is generally expected to stay in their role for a period of 3 years. The list of governors shows when their position is due for reconsideration and, if you are interested in and eligible to apply for the role, you should make the Chair of Governors or the Head Teacher aware. (Contact can be made via the school office.)
Otherwise, the school will advertise any vacancies for community and parent governors as and when they become available.
