Would you like to be a Governor?

Make a Positive Difference

Our two governing bodies are made up of elected parents, staff, learners, the headteacher of the school/principal of the college and co-opted governors. The school governors and the college governors each meet four times a year. There are also two governors who attend the trustee meetings.

As a governor you must hold an enhanced certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service which we can process for you. You are also expected to undertake relevant training required for the role.

If you are interested in joining our governors, please send an email to Naomi Alder, clerk to the governors on naomi.alder@st-johns.co.uk, outlining the skills and experience that you would bring to the role. We would be pleased to show you the school or college and to further discuss what the role of governor involves.
