Governing Body

Welcome to the section of our website where you can find out more about the governors and the work that they do.

What do governors do?

Christ Church governors are volunteers. They are enthusiasts. And each one has a crucial role to play in being a “critical friend” to the school, working in partnership with the whole school community to help provide the best possible education for each and every girl and boy at Christ Church.

How often do governors meet?

The Full Governing Body meets twice a term and has a finance committee that meet at least termly and report back to the Full Governing Body.
