Governing body

The Governing Body has 13 members and meets every half term. There are subcommittees for; Finance, Buildings and Estates (FBE), Pay and Personnel (P&P), Admissions, Curriculum & Pastoral matters. Members of the Governing Body are from all walks of life and bring knowledge and experience which prove invaluable in the governing of the school.

A Governors’ role is as a ‘critical friend’ to the school. They do not manage the school on a day to day basis but work as a group to guide and approve plans from the Head and Senior Management Team. They often provide valuable insights, or work as a sounding board for ideas and plans, to maintain and enhance the provision of education at AGGS.

Their role also includes the oversight of activities in the school and several governors act as ‘Link governors’ to gain specific knowledge in an area of the curriculum to keep the Governing Body informed more closely about what is happening in that area.

Governors are ultimately responsible for how the school is performing. The Governing Body includes Parent governors, Staff governors, Community Governors and Co-opted Governors.
