Governing Body

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

Governors are volunteers who give their time and expertise freely to support the school. 

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.

Sally Baker (Staff Governor), Sarah Bohn (Trust Appointed Governor), Jack Mayhew (Staff Governor ex officio) and Indrajit Sugunasingha (Parent Governor) are the only governors to have left the Governing Body in the last twelve months.

Jennifer Obaditch is the Chair of Governors. Email:  

All governors can be contacted via the school.
