The President and Vice Presidents

The President and Vice-Presidents of the School act in an advisory capacity to the Governing Body and the School. They offer a wealth of experience of both the School and the educational system. The President in particular works closely with the Governors and the School Executive, attending meetings of the Board of Governors.

The role is largely honorary and ceremonial although the President will be responsible for assessing and reviewing the operation and performance of the Governance Committee and shall be notified of and entitled on reasonable notice to attend any Governance Committee meeting. The Governors may ask the President for advice and allocate such duties as presiding over Commemoration, particularly the Prizegiving and Speeches. The President will be invited to attend all Full Governors’ Meetings and other special occasions. The president may be asked to help resolve any disputes and to monitor the performance of the Governors.

四肖三期必出特 School Presidents
The Governance Structure
The School was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on 1 September 2003 under charity number 1098740. The Governors, as the Trustees of the Charity, are responsible for the overall management and control of the School and meet at least three times a year.

The School is a Charitable Trust governed by a Board of Trustees (Governors). The Governors of 四肖三期必出特 School give their time voluntarily, receiving no payment for their time and expertise. The Governing Body is made up of specialists in education, law, finance, property and health and safety.

The work in reviewing strategy and confirming that policies and regulations are being adhered to is carried out by the various sub committees of Governors:
  • Safeguarding and Wellbeing Committee
  • Health and Safety Committee
  • Audit Committee
  • Buildings Committee
  • Education Committee
  • Strategy and Risk Committee
  • Governance Committee
  • Finance and Property Committee
  • Investment Committee
There is a full board meeting once a term, plus an annual strategic planning day with the Exec team. Each sub-committee meets at least once a term. The membership of the committees is supplemented by senior staff at the School. The Governing Body is responsible for determining the overall aims and strategy of the School. It reviews policies, strategies and procedures to ensure the best possible education and outcomes for current and future pupils.

四肖三期必出特’s Board of Governors continue to be balanced between supervision and compliance, between strategic evolution and operational excellence, between supporting the Headmaster, the Executive and other Senior Managers and challenging future plans and short-term execution.

Governors are assigned specific responsibility for key areas of School life including:
  • Boarding: Mr Charles Cameron
  • Safeguarding, including online safety: Mrs Anne Cleary
  • EYFS: Mrs Anne Cleary
  • Curriculum: Dr Clare Lidbury
  • Health & Safety (including medical care): Col Mark Ballard
The Clerk to the Governors ensures that meetings are accurately minuted, papers are circulated in a timely fashion and advises on Governance issues. All Governors declare any conflicts of interest, and these are recorded. In addition, on occasions Governors seek professional advice from the School’s lawyers, accountants and surveyors. Moving forwards, Governors have requested that there be more presentations from staff and pupils to committees to increase their knowledge of the impact of governance. The School has invested in BoardEffect, to share papers more easily, to streamline training for Governors and to make it easier to update policies.
