Fulston Manor School is a large non-selective school in Sittingbourne, Kent. The school forms part of the Fulston Manor Academies Trust (FMAT) with South Avenue Primary School. The school currently has 1376 students which includes 326 Sixth Form pupils.

We are looking for at least two Governors who have a combination of relevant skills, to strengthen and enhance the skills of the present governors. It would be ideal but not necessary if someone has experience in project management, financial planning, procurement and purchasing and premises and facilities management.

We believe to fulfil the role of a Governor effectively you will need to  be committed, confident, curious, challenging, collaborative, critical and creative all contributing to a hugely rewarding role. The Governing Board are a dedicated team all working to support the school to ensure the best possible outcomes for young people in Swale.

If this sounds like something you would enjoy and can dedicate to please get in contact.
