Join our Team, become a Champion (and maybe even a superhero!)

“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never ever give up on them, someone who understands the power of education and strives to ensure that every child will become the best they can possibly be.” Rita Pierson, Educator

 “Governance has never been more critical to the education of our nation’s young people.”

Baroness Elizabeth Berridge, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Schools, October 2020

The coronavirus outbreak brought out the best in every single member of our highly dedicated team of staff and our parents/carers who have high aspirations for their children. We are looking to appoint Governors to work collaboratively with our Senior Leaders to address the challenge of getting our children “back on track” with their learning.  You do not need any special qualifications, we just want you to bring a real passion for supporting every child to achieve and succeed.  We encourage applications from all members of society, regardless of background, culture, gender, ethnicity, disability, or age (as long as you are over 18) and we really do look forward to hearing from you.

Governors have four meetings per year, currently held in the evenings at 6.30 pm.  Please do allow additional time for reading the agenda and reports prior to each meeting.  Governors also carry out monitoring visits. 

Please do contact Sarah Steven (Clerk to The Galaxy Trust) to discuss this amazing opportunity.
