    Governors

    There are many misconceptions about the role that governors perform. As well as promoting our school, they are accountable for providing strategic leadership and hold responsibility for the school's finances and policies. It is governors who work with our headteacher to make tough decisions about the operation of the school and its role in the wider community.

    In preparation for academisation in Spring 2018, vacancies will not be filled. The governing body will operate on a reduced membership.

    Wath Comprehensive School's governing body consists of:

    • 8 Co-opted Governors appointed by the governing body (3 vacancies).
    • 2 Foundation Governors appointed by the governing body (2 vacancies).
    • The Headteacher
    • 1 Local Authority Governor nominated by the Local Authority, appointed by the Governing Body
    • 7 Parent Governors appointed by parents carers at the school (by election) (2 vacancies)
    • 1 Staff Governor appointed by staff at the school (by election)

    Chair of Governors: Mrs Irene Hartley MBE
    Vice Chair of Governors: Mr Brian Tinnion
