Are you interested in becoming a Foundation Governor?

Christian ministry takes many forms and church school governance is a rewarding part of the church’s mission.  Candidates don’t need to be Anglicans – other denominations are welcome.  You don’t need to be an educationalist – training is provided.  School governing bodies need experience from all walks of life.

Are you interested in becoming a Foundation Governor? Listen to some of the experiences of our Foundation Governors and how their governance work has helped them develop their Christian mission.

What is involved?

  • Reading papers and researching ahead of meetings;
  • Questioning in a professional and respectful way in order to hold the school to account;
  • Challenging and supporting in equal measure;
  • Ensuring children within the school develop both academically and spiritually within a distinctively Christian ethos:
  • Using your skills to support the school team.
