The Governing Body comprises members of the local community, foundation church authorities, parents, school staff and representatives of the Local Authority. 

As a school we recognise that a diversity of thought, voices and perspectives is essential to good governance and the effective running of any organisation. We regularly collect diversity information from our governors and, depending on current data, can use this to:

  • target recruitment to address gaps in experience and diversity
  • develop and adapt broad practices to ensure full participation
  • prioritise training and awareness-raising in identified areas
  • address potential 'blind spots' through seeking wider advice and perspectives on current and upcoming opportunities, challenges and risks

However, we are unable to publish this information as it would mean that individual members of our governing body are identifiable. 

The Governing Body of Leatherhead Trinity School & Nursery is constituted and represented as below. Details regarding strategic responsibilities, declared business interests and attendance can be found within the linked documents.
