Audited Accounts

The number of issues that they need to discuss is vast and therefore a committee system is used. Each member of Corporation will sit on a Committee using their own expertise to bring an immense breadth of knowledge to the Corporation.

There are five standing committees as follows:

  • Audit Committee
  • Search and Governance Committee
  • Finance Committee
  • Remuneration Committee

Contact the Governors
If you wish to make contact with our Governing Body, the first point of contact is Claire Bailey, our independent Clerk who will deal with your correspondence confidentially.  This is the case should you wish to contact an individual Governor or the Corporation.

We have the following elected Governors on our Board, although elected by their respective peers, these Governors, like all corporation members do not speak and vote by mandates given to them by others.  If you wish to contact elected Governors and do not have their contact details, please contact the clerk as above.

  • Parent Governor
  • Student Governors
  • Teaching Staff Governor
  • Support Staff Governor

Our complaints policy can be accessed through the policy page as can our whistleblowing policy. Please feel free to contact the Clerk on any issues in relation to the Corporation.
