Governors

Burnham Grammar School is an academy and part of the Beeches Learning and Development Trust. Each school within Beeches Learning and Development Trust is managed by its local governing body and the Senior Leadership Team of the school.

Working in partnership with the Headteacher and staff, governors ensure high standards of achievement for the young people in the school. We focus on strategy and school improvement; we decide what we want the school to achieve, set priorities and monitor progress to realise these aims.

We have three core strategic functions delegated to us by Beeches Learning and Development Trust Board:

  • Setting the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school, within the context of Beeches Learning and Development Trust
  • Holding the Headteacher and senior staff to account for the educational performance of the school and its students
  • Ensuring the school remains within the budget delegated by Beeches Learning and Development Trust and making sure the money is well spent.

 

The current committee of Governors for the school is as follows:
