The Governing Body is known as the Governors’ Meeting.

Governors are responsible for the management of the school. They decide on its overall policy and strategy including plans for development. They are also regarded by Charity Law as the Trustees of the School and need to ensure that the School is run in accordance with its charitable objects.

Members are nominated by Governors, parents or BOSA and subsequently appointed by Quakers in Yorkshire (for more information please visit www.quakersinyorkshire.org.uk).

The Committee appoints a Clerk (Chair) and a Treasurer from within its membership. Appointments are usually for four years, and a second term of four years may be served.

The members of the Governors’ Meeting as at 1 January 2020 are:

Robert Barton, Simon Hetherton, Rachel Hicks, Sharon Hodgson, Tillmann Jacobi, Cathy Limb, Donald Purves, Graham Ralph, Alex Raubitschek, Stephen Sayers (Clerk), David Stanton, Malcolm Sterratt, and Heather Woolley.

The Governors’ Meeting is concerned with policy, strategy and outcomes, and meets each term to receive reports and recommendations from four sub-committees. Chris Jeffery is present, together with Martyn Beer (Deputy Head), Helen Todd (Head of Junior School), Gavin Blackstone (Bursar) and Kitty Wilson (Staff Representative). In accordance with Quaker principles decisions are recorded in Minutes agreed by those present at the meeting.

The four sub-committees – Compliance, Education, Fundraising and Finance and Resources – meet at least once each term with Chris Jeffery (Head) and other members of staff as appropriate. Each of the sub-committees has power to co-opt up to two members.
