Our Governing Board

The school is supported and overseen by a Governing Board. The Board consists of members of our two charitable foundations, several co-optative governors and parent governors.

The purpose of the Governing Board is to support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team, consult on areas of shared expertise, and oversee the longer-term management and financial health of the school.

The Undershaw Governing Board members are committed to the school’s vision and passionate about its future.

 

The Board of Governors reports to both of our funding foundations on the overall work and development of the school and welcome members of each onto the board.  The main role is to hold the leadership of the school to account acting as a ‘critical friend’.
