Who can be a Governor?
All types of people can become school governors. No special qualifications are required, but you must be 18 or over on the date when you are elected or appointed. Enthusiasm, commitment and an interest in education are the most important qualities. Extensive training is available in a range of governor related topics. Although the role is unpaid governors find it rewarding in being able to give something back to society and also in learning new skills that can be transferred to other areas of their life. Examples include participation in committee work or even chairing meetings. You don’t need to have a child at Grove House or Kings Park Schools to become a governor.
