The Board of Trustee's has a key role to play in helping the College provide the best possible education for all its students. The School Standards and Framework Act 1998 strengthens that role by giving governing bodies a specific responsibility for helping to raise standards. The governing body meet regularly and review each aspect of the College. This includes students' achievement and progress, teaching and learning, use of resources, and staffing. Committees and panels are formed as required and a finance audit, resources and premises committee meet during the year to specifically review the best use of the money allocated to the College. The admissions panel meet regularly throughout the year.
The Governors’ vision is that the College, including all the students and staff, are the “best we can be” and more detail on this can be found by following this link.
