    Governing Body

    Within this section of the School Website you will find information about the School’s Governing Body and an introduction to the team of enthusiastic Governors who support Dormers Wells High School.  You will also be able to learn a little about the different types of Governors and the role that School Governors undertake.

    What is a school Govermor

    School Governors are drawn from all walks of life and as you will see in this section there are various types of Governors.  The first question to ask yourself is, “Are you interested in the education, welfare and opportunities provided for children and young people?” If the answer to the first question is, “Yes", then have you got enthusiasm and time to spare? If so, you could consider volunteering as a school governor.  

    Governors give their service voluntarily and no formal qualifications are necessary although there are eligibility criteria. Governors are ordinary people, aged over 18, with a special commitment to the education and well-being of children. The terms of office are four years.
