The management of the School is headed by the Local Governing Committee (LGC) that is comprised of parents, teaching staff, co-optees and HVT appointees drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, who each occupy a four year term of office. The aim of our Governing Committee is to challenge, support and complement the work of our School. LGC Committee meetings take place four times per year and are supported by additional Governor visits into School.
