    Governing Body

    Kirkham Grammar School Main Content Area

    The Governors of Kirkham Grammar School are also Directors and Trustees of the company. They determine the general policy of the School, delegating its day to day management to the Headmaster, Bursar and their senior management teams.

    The Governors number currently 11 and are appointed at the Annual General Meeting after meetings with Chair of Governors and Headmaster.

    Potential Governors are nominated by past or present Governors, the Headmaster or other professional groups. The Governors will consider the eligibility, personal competence, specialist skills and local availability before any recommendations are made.

    Governors' Training

    New Governors are inducted into the workings of the School, both as a company and as a charity, by being invited to attend all of the sub-committee meetings, as well as the Board meetings, in their first year of appointment. In addition they are provided with guidance from both AGBIS (Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools) and ISC (Independent Schools Council), and are given the opportunity to attend relevant training courses.

    Organisational Management

    The Governors generally meet three times a year. There are, in addition, four sub-committees; comprising of Finance and Development; Curriculum and Pupil Affairs; Personnel and Boarding House. These sub-committees meet once per term. Governors also hold an annual meeting with staff representatives regarding terms and conditions. Further meetings are also held in order to address specific issues such as Strategic Planning or building projects.
