Governors

Governors of Horizon Community College

Three core functions of the Governing Body

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Principal to account for the educational performance of the College and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the college and making sure its money is well spent

What we do

  • The governing body meets every term and also delegates many tasks to committees which meet regularly. Governors are expected to offer support and constructive challenge to college leaders and should have the skills, time and commitment to do this
  • Governors undertake ongoing training to make sure that we are effective and efficient in our role
  • Governors are volunteers with a diverse range of experiences but work together as a team to ensure that students at Horizon Community College receive the best possible education
