Being a school governor is a challenging but hugely rewarding role which gives you the chance to make a real difference to young people. If you think you’ve got what it takes we’d love to hear from you!

We’re particularly interested in those who have a background or skills in marketing/PR, education/inspection, procurement and Health & Safety.
