Our Governors play a very important role at Whitings Hill. The Governors are responsible for a wide array of duties ranging from managing the school budget to employing staff to overseeing the curriculum and ensuring the upkeep of the building. Our Governors work very hard for the development of successful learning at Whitings Hill and there are a variety of times during the school year when you can meet them.

All parents receive a copy of the Governors’ Report and are welcome to attend the Governors' Annual Report to Parents meeting. Below is a list of our Governors to date:
