OUR SCHOOL VISION

We are here to provide the best possible education for girls. Our tradition of excellence will never change but we are also passionate about the breadth of aspiration and opportunity.

At the heart of our inspirational school, we strive to free girls to be themselves whilst developing strong relationships. We believe girls deserve an environment that enables them to be confident, resilient and ready to contribute significantly to the world.

THE WORLD IS EVER-CHANGING: CHALLONER’S GIRLS WILL SHAPE THAT WORLD


As governors, we have a responsibility to oversee the strategic direction of the school and its policies alongside the headteacher who is accountable for the day-to-day operations and management of the school.

In addition to full Governing Body meetings, we have five committees each with their own remits and responsibilities: Admissions,  Curriculum & Pastoral, Finance & Audit, Personnel and Premises. Through these committees, we monitor the school’s performance. We also provide specialist skills as required.

Each governor specialises in a particular subject, an area of school activity, year group or school house and provides a link back into the full Governing Body. We attend a variety of meetings and events to speak to pupils, parents and teachers to ensure we remain close to the school. We meet governors and staff from other schools to share best practice and keep abreast of what is happening elsewhere in education and we provide a link for parents and our local community.

We attend specialist governor training sessions to keep up to date with the requirements of our role and to ensure we are equipped to perform them. We give our time, experience and expertise voluntarily because we want to give something back and believe the school’s vision, ethos and strategic direction will enable it to continue to provide the best possible education for girls.
