School Governor

Founded in 1975 with the aim of providing a complete education for boys and girls from the age of 4 18 years. The three St James Schools are based in London and Surrey. The Junior School and Senior Girls School are centrally located together in West London, close to Hammersmith and Kensington Olympia. The Senior Boys School is located in a 32-acre site in Ashford, Surrey. Together, these independent schools offer a distinctive approach to education which provides for the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development of every child; they aim to provide an environment in which a pupil can discover all that is best within his or her own nature. The role of a Governor is to act as critical friend to the School Leadership team and to help hold the Head to account. We are looking for someone that wants to spend time to get to know the School through a combination of attending events, visits and governor meetings. We are looking for a professional with a passion for education and relentless focus on achieving best outcomes for the School and its pupils. The current governors contribute to the development of the School s strategy, provide robust scrutiny of data, monitor compliance, provide advice and guidance, and actively challenge the leadership team to ensure that St James Schools are best they can be. Time commitment: The average commitment is 5 hours per month, although this will vary depending on the needs of the School.
