Richard Karn - Chair of Governors

Richard Karn – Chair of Governors

The Governing Body is made up of representatives from many of the main stakeholder groups who contribute to College life – in particular, parent governors, staff governors and co-opted governors. Every governor serves a term of office – normally four years, before standing for re-election.

The Full Governing Body meets at least six times a year and acts as the main forum for decision making. However, to enable the governors to focus on particular aspects of College life, we also split into smaller sub-committees each with a specific focus area. Sub-committees meet three times a year and work within agreed Terms of Reference. Sub-committees are: Curriculum, Finance and General Purposes, Stakeholder Engagement and Health, Safety and Wellbeing.

Our highest priority is the enrichment of every student and we measure the success of the College through the outstanding work and dedication of the staff to deliver personalised learning, so that the future opportunities for every individual are realised. We also challenge ourselves, as a governing body, to make a continuous positive contribution to the aspirations of the College, to be the best it can be.

Governors aspirations:

  • Champion the College, staff and students.
  • Present themselves as ambassadors of the College.
  • Strive for the best education available for every individual student.
  • Ensure the College offers fulfilment and enjoyment for each student during their time at the College.
  • Stimulate enthusiasm for life.
