This provides a good balance of experience and makes for an effective Governing Body, which is tasked to act corporately and objectively in all decision-making. The main Governing Body is supported by a smaller Sub-Committee responsible for finance, the F and GP Committee, and by a Risk Management Committee.

Governors are kept abreast of developments in school in regular communications, reports and meetings with the Headmistress and members of the Senior Leadership Team.
