Our Governors

As a local Governing Body under the Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust, our aim is to support the Headteacher and his staff in ensuring that each and every pupil is well supported in order to reach his/her full potential, academically, socially and spiritually.  Governors are appointed by the Diocese of Chichester and are drawn from the community, parents and staff.  The Governing Body meets six times a year and is responsible for strategic decision making within the school.

To contact the Governors, please email the Clerk to Governors, Paula Palmer on
