The governors are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.  The purpose of the governing body is to conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school.


The school’s governing body consists of seven co-opted governors, three elected parent governors, one elected staff governor and one local authority governor.  The headteacher is also a governor.


The school is supported directly by the department for education.


You can contact the governors via the clerk to the governors: Mrs Christine Freeland, c/o Netherhall School, Telephone: 01900 813434
