The Governing Body

Guildford County School Governing Body is comprised of 7 trust-appointed governors, 5 parent governors and 4 staff governors (including the Headteacher who is ex-officio).  There are also 2 associate members of the governing body.

Governors are volunteers who give their time and expertise freely to support the school. Some are parents of students at the school, or whose children previously attended. 

A governor’s term of office is four years.  The Governing Body appoints all governors, except staff and parent governors, where elections are held.  Appointments are made according to the skills needed by the governing body.

3 Governors have resigned within the past 12 months, these are Mrs Kathy Ashford, Mr Jim Hurman and Mr Adrian Hope.

All governors can be contacted via the school.
