The Governing Body is seeking enthusiastic and committed individuals to join an effective and cohesive team of people to hold the school to account, to shape the vision of the school and to set its strategic direction. Although governors are volunteers, excellent support and development opportunities are available through an induction process, and a full programme of training is available through Solihull MBC. There are also opportunities to work alongside experienced governors and to take a particular interest in an area of the school improvement plan or a specific curriculum area. We don’t expect you to be an expert in education and welcome governors from all walks of life to bring different perspectives and views. You just need to be committed to supporting our school community and improving the educational outcomes of our students. The school is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive community – our ambition is to work together to promote a more inclusive environment, which signals our commitment to celebrate and promote diversity. We intend that our Governing Body should reflect this diversity.
