What Do Governors Do

  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos & strategic direction
  • Hold the Headmaster and Senior Management Team to account for the educational performance of the school and its students
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

Within QEGS we achieve this through half termly meetings of Full Governors and its two sub-committees which deal in detail with the two main aspects of the governing body’s work. Each governor also acts a link between a specific department and the governing body.

Our Committees
