Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors' Section.

Constitution of the Governing Body


There are eleven members of the governing body. These eleven consist of the following posts:


  • The Headteacher
  • One LEA appointed governor (appointed by Trafford Local Education Authority)
  • One elected staff governor (elected by the school staff)
  • Two elected parent governors (elected by the parents)
  • Seven co-opted governors.


Note: Co-opted governors are governors who have been invited to join the governing body because they have a particular skill or talent which would be of use to helping the school to achieve its development plans.


The government, wishes to see a significant shift away from precise stakeholder representation (elected or appointed governors) towards a more skills-based model of governance (governors invited on because of their particular skills). One of the government's aims is to produce smaller governing bodies, which can now have as few a seven members.


Please see the table below for the current make up of the governing body.
