Sub-committees have been set up to cover various areas of responsibility, i.e. (i) Resources (ii) Teaching, Learning and Pupil Support,

The full governing body has four meetings each year. In addition to these there are two sub committees which meet once a term; the Resources sub committee which is responsible for staffing, finance and buildings, and the Teaching, Learning and Pupil Support sub committee which is responsible for the curriculum, standards and achievement. All the governors sit on one or both of the sub committees and the minutes of these meetings are fed back to the full governors meetings. Minutes of all the governors meetings are available for parents to see upon request once they have been ratified.

Governors attend regular training courses during their term of office to ensure that they have the necessary skills to assist and monitor the running of the school by the headteacher and the senior management team. A record of training completed is held in the school office. Some governors are linked to a particular year group and have regular contact with their class, helping on trips and with activities.

At the beginning of each academic year governors have to declare any relevent business and pecuniary interests. For this academic year the following interests were recorded:

Carol Hoyle relative of Jonathan Hoyle (JPH Joinery):Martin Hughes director of Catrake Ltd. Christopher Townsley is also a governor at Horsforth High School, Nigel Atkins works for West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
