Governors

Our Governors are volunteers who play an important part in setting the direction of Settle College, ensuring we continue to raise standards and strive for excellence in everything we do. All Settle College Governors are passionate about improving the lives of every single young person and they are fully committed to our aim of being ‘outstanding and beyond’.

The purpose of our governing body is to:

  • Help Settle College to set high standards by planning for the future and setting targets for school improvement
  • Keep up the momentum of whole school improvement
  • Be a critical friend, offering support and advice
  • Help us respond to the needs of parents and the community
  • Make us accountable to the public for what we do
  • Work with the College on planning, developing policies and keeping all aspects of the College under review
  • Exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the Principal and staff.

Many governors are linked to monitoring a particular subject or area of the College. Link Governors are also responsible for monitoring aspects of the College Improvement Plan in their meetings with members of the Senior Leadership Team, which are held on a regular basis.
