The Governing Body of the College is best described as the group of non-executive directors who determine and secure those statutory policies which are imposed on them and receive other college management policies via the headteacher who is the Chief Executive. The Governing Body monitors the implementation of policy via its committees, Visiting Governors etc. Governors who act corporately, in good faith and in the light of best advice will never be vulnerable in law: hence, individual governors have no power to act alone.
Any matters relating to a college policy should be directed in the first instance to the headteacher who will ensure an appropriate member of staff deals with the matter. Student matters should initially be directed to their Head of House for existing students or to Mr C King for admissions.
The Governing Body operates in accordance with the College’s Governing Body Handbook, a document which is kept under review and provides the Terms of Reference of each of the Committees, Panels etc. and broadly covers the way the Governing Body works and reports.
The offices of Chairman and Vice-Chair are the subject of annual election each Autumn Term. The Chair of Governors is Cllr. J Branson
Correspondence to the Chairman or other members of the Governing Body should be addressed to:
Clerk to the Governors, c/o the Crookhorn College.
