Governors

Those that serve on our Governing Body are proud to be associated with Wollaston School.

Governors are primarily responsible for the strategic direction of the school, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of the school through full governing body and sub-committee meetings, in order to ensure that everything possible is being  done to secure student achievement.

Governors also visit the school on a regular basis, taking time to talk to the students and staff and experiencing first hand what it is like to be part of the Wollaston School community.
