The Governing Body’s work centres on the work of two committees (Standards Committee and Sixth Form Committee) that meet termly. These committees cover the main aspects of the College’s work: the quality and standards of student achievement and sixth form specific matters. These committees meet during the full meetings of the Local Governing Body who report to Trustees. Underpinning these formal contacts is a wide range of other contacts including regular meetings between the Sixth Form Leadership Team and the Chair of Governors, site inspections and sitting on interview panels. In all these ways, Governors have become to know the College better.
The Governing Body’s relationship with the College is based on trust and openness. This openness is evident in the sharing of detailed information as the College pursues its agreed improvement targets. In turn, this has produced knowledgeable Governors who fully understand what is being done and so are able to challenge as ‘critical friends’.
