There are several Governors committees which enable the Governing body to carry out its responsibilities.

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The Governors hold regular training sessions and are part of the Dudley Governor support and training network, as well as accessing training more widely, and NGA events.
