The governors are responsible for ensuring the school is managed effectively and policies and practice comply with legislation. Duties include agreeing the budget, reviewing policies, monitoring standards, setting targets and appointing staff. The full body meets once a term, with detailed work done in committees which meet more frequently. The main committees are: Curriculum, Finance, Personnel and Premises. Full training is available to everyone who becomes a governor. The 2018 Governors annual report letter provides a short summary of the last school year produced by the governing body.
