Governing Body

The role of the governing body is to provide strategic leadership to the school, ensuring accountability for its educational and financial performance. The governing body has three core functions:

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

Governors (also known as Trustees in an Academy setting), alongside the Senior Leadership Team, set the aims and objectives for the School. Through its committees, the governing body then sets the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives.

The governors of Wirral Grammar School for Girls are enthusiastic and committed, supporting the pupils and students, the schools and its leadership, regularly monitoring and providing challenge. They meet as a Full Governing Body, and in committees. The four committees of the Governing Body are:

  • Curriculum and Pastoral Committee
  • Finance/Audit
  • Staffing
  • Pay
