Wellington School’s Governing Body
Governors of Wellington are fully involved in the life of the School. They offer a wide variety of expertise which cover all aspects of the business world and the delivery of the curriculum. As a result support can be assured for all staff in their work to create an excellent learning environment for the pupils. Wellington School is an Academy and therefore a registered business. In this context Governor expertise in the business world is invaluable.
The Governing Body comprises leaders in business, educationalists, lawyers, accountants and parents. A number of long-serving Governors initially joined the Governing Body as Parent Governors and were co-opted after their children had left Wellington. This indicates the passion Governors feel for the success of the pupils, long after their own children have moved to the next stage of their lives.
The current Chairman was first elected to the Governing Body as a Parent Governor. The time, support and knowledge which he affords Wellington is outstanding and is recognised by all as a major contribution to the life of the School.
Governors meet regularly as a full board, but also in committees to determine policy in personnel matters, curriculum, community and the environment and finance. In addition to supporting the initiatives of the School, Governors also question and hold to account the School Leadership. The undoubted success of Wellington School results directly from Governors determining the strategic direction of the School, with Leadership delivering the aims and objectives of the highest standard!
Parent Governors are recruited via ballot of the parent body, but others are appointed by the Governing Body. Local business people or professionals who have a strong interest in education and Wellington School in particular, should write to the Chairman of Governors at School if they feel they can contribute to the further success of Wellington.
