Churchill Academy & Sixth Form

Become an Academy Governor

If you are a member of our local community, a parent or carer of a current Churchill student, then we have a role for you! We're seeking to find Community Governors and Parent Governors who will reflect the richness and diversity of the Academy.

As a governor, you will play a key role in shaping the future of the Academy for our students, staff and community. By working together, we want you to bring an outside perspective to help support and challenge us as we implement strategies and provisions. 

You will work in partnership with the other governors to form the Academy’s Local Governing Body (LGB). The LGB is responsible for providing confident strategic leadership, and robust accountability, oversight and assurance over the Academy’s educational and financial performance. 

The Local Governing Body meets six times a year, with one meeting allocated to each term. All of our governors are volunteers and donate their time and skills to support and guide the Academy in its pursuit of school improvement. Governors are imperative to the Academy and we value the governing body greatly. 

This is an exciting time to join the Local Governing Board and be a representative of the Academy and Lighthouse Schools Partnership.
