Together we Shine Academically, Personally & Socially

School Governing Body

 

The Governing Body is a vital working part of the school structure, where all aspects of school life is discussed and policy decisions are made.

 

We have a highly skilled and committed compliment of Governors at Whitehill, who ensure that the school and its staff are well-supported, but equally challenged to continually improve the outcomes for our pupils.

 

The Governing Body itself has seen many changes over the last 18 months and have strived to ensure that it has a full skill-set for governing a school. Between our governors we have:

  • A retired Headteacher;
  • A local Councillor;
  • A school's data analyst;
  • An accountant;
  • An ex-local authority HR advisor;
  • A neighbouring local authority Young People & Families Substance Misuse advisor and;
  • Members who work in schools or with young children.
