The Governing Board is made up of representatives from many of the main stakeholder groups who contribute to College life – in particular, parent governors, staff governors, governors appointed on behalf of the local authority and co-opted governors. Every governor serves a term of office – normally four years, before standing for re-election. The Governing Board has a collective responsibility and decisions are made by majority vote. Each full governor has a vote on key decisions. From time to time we increase our wealth of knowledge and expertise through the appointment of Associate Members to the governing board. An associate member will be engaged to bring additional and particular skills and experience, and will play an active part in the discussion and debate on the plans and aspirations for the College, but they have some restrictions applied in any voting processes.
