Interested in becoming a Governor?

We are looking to recruit a number of governors to support our school when it opens in September 2021.

The role of a governor can be very rewarding, and volunteering within our schools will provide you with the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to your local community and the future of our young people.

Governors will sit on our Local Governing Body and work with the senior leadership team to ensure students are receiving the best education possible and that all resources are being used effectively to support this ambition. A strong governing body is made up of a group of people who will contribute various skills and experience, and who will commit to working together for the benefit of the trust and the local communities in which we work.

Being a governor requires individuals to learn about schools and ways of working, and it is also about individuals bringing their skills and experience to contribute to an existing skillset. It is important that every governing body is made up of a group of people who have an understanding of their role and responsibilities, who are committed to gaining knowledge about the school and who will ask challenging questions to scrutinise leadership and decisions made within school. Governing bodies have key strategic responsibilities and these need to be explored within every meeting, without getting involved in the day to day operational activity within the school.

Governors play an important part in every school and we invite you to learn more about Trinity Multi-Academy Trust, our schools and the opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of our young people.

If you are interested in discussing our governor vacancies further, please complete the Expression of Interest form below and return to the email address given on the form. We will then get in touch to arrange a further conversation.
