Become a governor

As a governor, you'll gain insights into school operations, hone your leadership abilities, and make a meaningful contribution to the well-being and growth of young people in your community.

To qualify as a governor, you must be at least 18 years old, not be a registered student at the school, and you cannot hold more than one governorship at the same institution. The school will require that you undertake a DBS check.

Types of governors

Head teachers will automatically become a governor but may choose not to take the position. However, they have the right to attend all governor meetings.
