The Local Governing Body

Guildford County School Local Governing Body is comprised of nine Trust Appointed Governors, four Parent Governors and five Staff Governors (including the Executive Headteacher and Head of School who are ex-officio).

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.

Five governors have resigned within the past 12 months, these are Mrs Fiona Davidson, Mr Adam Day, Mr James Felgate, Mrs Janette Owen and Mr Tim Wolfenden.

All governors can be contacted via the school.
