Meet the Governors

The membership of Hill Top Academy Governing Body and their role

The remit Governing Body?

The school has a Governing Body to ensure that it has the capacity to improve and raise overall standards. Ofsted considers the governing body to be part of the leadership and management of the school, however governors do not manage the school. That is the job of the Executive Principal, Principal and Leadership Team. Governors are there to be “a critical friend” to the Executive Principal and the school, However they do oversee the development of the school – their main aim being to assist the Executive Principal, Principal and senior leaders to always provide a high standard of education for all pupils, of all abilities. We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of governors who are actively involved in the life of the school.
