School Governors & Trustees

Governors play an important role in deciding the strategic aims, direction and policies of the school. In addition to attending formal meetings each half term, Governors are also appointed to sit on at least one of four sub-committees with oversight of: personnel matters, school finance, premises / health & safety, or students and the curriculum.

If you are interested in becoming a Governor and would like to know more about the role then please either contact an existing Governor, or a member of the senior leadership team at the school.

At Southend High School for Girls Academy Trust all Governors are currently Trustees, and also Members of the Charity Trust.
