Have you thought about becoming a school governor? Apply now!

We are currently looking to appoint three new governors to the governing body of Wollaston School. We are looking for governors with a suitable skills set to enhance the experience and add to the work of the governing body.

The vacancies will not be filled via a parent election, as there are rules about how many of these the school can appoint. They will, therefore, be co-opted governors and appointed via a panel interview. The governors’ terms of office run for four years. The skills sets we are particularly looking for are as follows:

  • Knowledge of teaching and learning in a secondary school environment
  • Safeguarding
  • Financial planning and purchasing
  • Premises management
  • Health and safety
  • Legal issues
  • Links with local businesses

If you, or anyone you know, may be interested in applying, please contact Louisa Nixon (Clerk to Governors), clerktogovernors@wollaston-school.net  for further information or to arrange a meeting with the Headteacher.  Alternatively please send a brief letter to school explaining what you believe you can bring to the governing body.
