Kirkby College’s governing body provides strategic challenge to the leadership of the academy focusing on three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the academy and its students, and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the academy and making sure its money is well spent

Governors are volunteers who offer support to all stakeholders of Kirkby College to ensure that all our students achieve their full potential.

Welcome from the Chair of Governors

On behalf of the Trust and governing body, I would like to welcome you to Kirkby College.

The governing body work closely with the headteacher to ensure the clarity of vision the ethos and strategic direction of the academy, secure good outcomes for its students and oversee the financial performance of the academy.

All governors are recruited from the community the academy serves – a number of us also previously or currently have had children at Kirkby College.

Our expectations of student and staff are high and the conduct of students across the academy is very good due to the overwhelmingly positive ethos.
