Our Governors
 \  our-people  \  Our Governors

Redcliffe School is a registered charity known as the Redcliffe School Trust Limited, enabling it to use any financial surpluses to enhance the school.

Our Governors act as both Governors of the School and Trustees of the Charitable Trust.

Our Board of Governors have ultimate responsibility for the activities of the Trust including its charitable trust status, setting the strategic direction for the school, developing policy, monitoring adherence to regulations, financial and educational performance. They also oversee the implementation of the school’s vision of “dedicated to growing excellence” by our Head and her team of staff.

We select our Governors from a variety of backgrounds, many of whom have particular expertise in the financial, legal and educational sectors. They commit to an initial term of five years, which may be extended by a further three years.

Our Governors meet three times per year in full session, as well as participating in the various sub-committees during the academic year.
