Our Governing Body

Structure and Remit of the Governing Body and Committees

The Governing Body consists of 12 Governors.

Of these:

  • 2 are elected by parents
  • 1 is elected by the staff
  • 1 is the Headteacher
  • 7 are co-opted governors appointed by the Cygnus Trust/ Governing Body

The Governing Body may also appoint Associate Members, who are not Governors and do not have voting rights at the Local Governing Body, but who attend Local Governing Body meetings and may be appointed to sit on a committee with or without voting rights. Except for the Headteacher, all Governors are appointed or elected for a term of 4 years.

The Governing Body meets minimum 6 times a year.
