Governing Board

Hinchley Wood became an academy on 1st February 2012.  This means that we are an academy trust and a registered company, limited by guarantee. 

MEMBERS OF ACADEMY TRUST

Six governors were originally appointed as members of the Academy Trust and signed a Memorandum of Association.  Members meet as required and at least once a year.

Current Members are:

NAME POST

Miss Claudette Atkinson

Mr Peter Drysdale

Mr Robert Mutchell

Mr Andy Sellers

Mr Marc Weedon

Co-Chair of Governors

Responsible Trustee

Chair of Finance & Resources Committee

Co-Chair of Governors

Vice-Chair of Governors

 

 

GOVERNING BOARD

The Governing Board remains the employer and the admissions authority and the land and buildings are held in trust by the trustees (governors).  The Governing Board is made up of up to 20 governors who have been appointed as directors of the company.  Governors have entered into a Funding Agreement with the Department for Education which includes the Memorandum and Articles of Association for the Company.  A copy of this document can be accessed via this link 

The Governing Board continues to work in partnership with the Headteacher, staff, parents and students to raise standards of achievement.  The Governing Board has a strong focus on three core strategic functions:  ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students, and the performance management of staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.  Our Governing Board meets five times a year and has established four main committees, each with its own agreed terms of reference - Admissions, Finance & Resources, Human Resources and Student Learning & Welfare.  A Governors Conference is held annually and governors are also involved with visits to school and regularly support special events.

Governors are either elected or appointed:  Parent Governors are elected from the parent body; the Governing Board appoints Co-opted Governors; school staff nominate and elect Staff Governors; the Headteacher is an Ex-Officio Governor; two governors are appointed by the Hinchley Wood Education Trust (HWET); up to six governors are appointed by Members.  Individual governors have no powers themselves and always act corporately.  The governors’ term of office is four years.

Current Governing Board membership is as follows:
