Governing Body


The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountability, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.


All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the effective and efficient performance management of staff; and

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.


Following reconstitution in July 2019, the governing body has places for 12 governors, who are appointed or elected as follows:

  • 7 foundation governors appointed by the Diocese of Oxford. This number also includes the rector of St. Michael`s Church, Sandhurst.

  • 2 elected parent governors

  • 1 LA governor appointed by Bracknell Forest Council

  • 1 elected staff governor

  • Headteacher
