Board of Governors

The Board of Governors was established under the school's Royal Charter. It is our patron body and the governors act as trustees to maintain our founding ethos.

The board determines the school's admissions policy, the maximum number of pupils, the ratio of boarders to day pupils and the greater balance.

It also appoints our principal, chaplain and head of finance and operations. It is responsible for capital expenditure and has a finance committee to establish the annual budget.

The governors elect representatives to our Board of Management, and the chairman of the Board of Governors is also chairman of the Board of Management.
