Governing Body

The Governing Body of Whitcliffe Mount School work closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to further enhance the quality of educational experience available to students. In our role as critical friends, Governors provide a combination of support and challenge to school leaders and staff in order to support continued improvement across all areas of school life, with a particular focus on outcomes for all of our students - both academic and personal.

In order to be an effective source of support and challenge, the Governing Body operates under a committee structure. All Governors serve on one committee and each member brings specific skills and experiences which add to the overall effectiveness of Governance in the school. The committees are made up as follows:

Resources Committee

Mr C M Dobson - Foundation Governor (Vice-Chair of Governors)
Mr M McKirgan - Co-opted Governor
Mrs D Kingett - Parent Governor
Miss J Templar - Headteacher

Achievement Committee

Mr R Amos - Parent Governor (Chair of Governors)
Mrs S Rumbold - Foundation Governor  
Mr P Woolford - Staff Governor
Mr P Hardill - Foundation Governor

Wellbeing Committee
