Become a school governor

We're looking for new school governors to support our schools across the Trust.

Governors play a vital role by acting as ambassadors for their school, while challenging and supporting the headteacher and wider team. In return, governors gain skills that can be transferred to the workplace and have a chance to give back to their community.

There are a number of vacancies at the trust’s schools across Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes, including Stimpson Avenue Academy and Castle Academy in Northampton.

School governors are required to attend around seven meetings a year and help to evaluate how the school and its pupils are performing. Governors receive full support and training from the trust.

Volunteering as a school governor offers the chance to give something back to your local community, as well as learning a range of useful skills that you can carry into other areas of your life including work.

We’re looking for people from a range of backgrounds and would particularly like to hear from those with experience in data analysis, finance, HR, special educational needs and law.

We would also love to hear from laypeople who simply bring life experience and a desire to improve outcomes for our pupils.

Applications are also being sought from people from black, Asian, and minority ethnic groups, people with a disability and younger people, who are all currently underrepresented on school governing bodies across the country.
