Become a Governor at Horndean Technology College

11 October 2021

Dear Parent/Carer

Become a Governor at Horndean Technology College

The Board of Governors is an integral part of the HTC Team.  It is not involved in the day to day running of the College.  Instead, Governors have a strong focus on ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and direction, holding the Headteacher to account for quality of teaching and outcomes for children and the performance management of the staff; and overseeing the financial performance of the College to make sure its money is well spent.

No particular skill or experience is required.  The strength of the Board of Governors is the breadth of skills and experience which it collectively can use to support the College.  Those skills and experience may have been gained as a parent, a member of the community or through their work.  Training and courses in particular aspects of being a Governor are available.

Each member of the Board of Governors will have different reasons for giving their time as a Governor, but all will share an interest in the education of young people, and a commitment to helping ensure that their education is the very best which Horndean Technology College can give them.  Being a Governor will provide an opportunity to be more involved in the local community and to put something back into it.   It will demand time and commitment, but in return can give great personal satisfaction from the knowledge that they are having a real impact on children’s futures.

If you have that interest in the education of young people and are interested in becoming a Governor or would like more information, please contact me at .

Yours sincerely
Trevor Blakeley
Chair of Governors
