Governors

Welcome to the Governors’ pages on the School website.

Rickmansworth School is self-governing Academy Trust which means the role of the Governing body is to help shape the overall direction of the School, monitor progress and standards, review and approve the budget, appoint and support the Head and senior staff, review policies and procedures and ensure the school fulfills its statutory duties.  Our Governors are representatives of the local community, parents and School staff.   They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills to the School and they all work in a voluntary capacity.  Meetings of the Governing Body are held twice each term.

Among our key priorities are: improving the quality of students’ learning; narrowing the gap between the achievement of the most disadvantaged students and other students; raising attainment at KS4; taking action to secure the quality of education provided by the School and maintaining our exceptional pastoral care and high educational achievements.
