Our governors form the Local Governing Board (LGB) within Excalibur Academies Trust, the structure of which is published below the previous page. It is also available, along with further information, on Excalibur's website.

The role of the LGB is to work with the school to ensure we are providing the highest standards of teaching and learning. The LGB also works with the school to further our work within the local community. The Chair represents our school at the LGB Chair's Forum which reports to the Directors of Excalibur Academies Trust.

Our LGB is made up of representatives of the staff and parents. We have foundation governors (who represent the interests of our church status) as well as community governors.

The governors can be contacted via the clerk (Julie Farrell):  julie.farrell@excalibur.org.uk.
