The Governors are responsible for the well being of the School, endorsing strategic development and ensuring the School’s financial accountability. There are currently 20 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.
