The governing body has four local authority Governors, three staff Governors, eight parent Governors, a Chair, a Vice Chair and the Headteacher. Their job is to check that the Headteacher is setting and meeting ambitious targets for both his staff and students, and doing it within budget.
When a vacancy for a parent Governor comes up, we contact all parents/carers so that people can put themselves forward. Then parents/carers vote on their preferred candidate. If you’re not a parent/carer but would like to be a Governor, then please contact the Leeds Governors’ Support Service.
Here are further details about the structure of our Governing Body and our current Governors:
