Thorpepark Academy governors

Governors play a very important role in the school community. They monitor the progress the school is making, appoint key members of staff, and ensure that both children and staff operate in an appropriate way.

Governors are responsible for the strategic direction of the academy, establishing suitable policies, monitoring standards and ensuring value for money.
