Governing Body and Trustees
Our Governing Body meets three times a year and works across both Park House School and Tram House School. In addition the Standards Committee, a subcommittee of the full Governing Body, also meets three times a year. Governors attend at least one full training day a year.
Our Governors are actively involved in many aspects of school life and are completely committed to the success of the school and to ensuring the best possible provision for our pupils.
Governors are recruited from across the school community including parents, staff and members of the local community. Parent Governors are elected by the parents. Staff Governors are elected by the staff, and staff from across the schools are encouraged to stand.
