Governors

The Governors are responsible for the well being of the School, endorsing strategic development and ensuring the School’s financial accountability. There are currently 23 members of the Board of Governors who come from a variety of backgrounds including the professions, finance, business, education and property and bring a broad range of knowledge, skills and expertise to the management of the School.

They give their time freely and are deeply committed to the success of the School. The Board of Governors meets at least four times a year with one meeting a year being held at Fishmongers’ Hall, London. The Finance & General Purposes Committee, Estate Committee and Education Committee meet prior to Board of Governors’ Meetings.
