Governors

The Board of Governors is made up of representatives from the community, parents and from College staff. They work very closely with the Principal, Jan Atkinson, and her senior leadership team to ensure that students receive a quality education in a safe and welcoming environment.

Whatever course or programme that your daughter/son undertakes at the College, we want to be sure that it is a quality experience with successful outcomes.

The Board of Governors would like to encourage you to take an active part in your child's education by ensuring that attendance is good, there is a commitment to study and that you attend parents evenings and College events.

We are sure that your experience with the College will be a positive one.

Please contact Sue Young, should you wish to get in contact with or require any further information from the Board of Governors.
