Structure, Responsibilities and Interests of the Governing Body

Governors all serve the school on a voluntary basis. They are elected or appointed for a term of 4 years and may seek re-election or be appointed for further terms of office.

Marlborough’s Instrument of Governance allows for up to 11 governors made up of:

  • 2 parent governors
  • 2 staff governors (one teacher governor and the headteacher ex officio)
  • 1 Local Authority governor
  • 6 co-opted governors

This section gives some information about the governing body’s committees and the governors’ responsibilities and interests.
