Governor Recruitment

Thinking of becoming a school governor? We want to hear from you!

The de Ferrers Trust mission is ‘to ensure that all the children and young people in our care have the opportunity to fulfill their potential through achieveing highly, regardless of their ability or background'. Our governors are a fundamental part of that mission, ensuring that our academies offer high quality provision for each and every learner.

We are always on the lookout for new governors, to join over 40 already carrying out brilliant work in support of our academies, Principals and the Trust as a whole.

Do you have…

  • a passion for learning and self-development?
  • the time and capacity to commit to six meetings per year?
  • a willingness to take on responsibility, support our academies and hold them to account for delivering excellent education?

There is no requirement to have a formal qualification to be a governor, and you do not need to be a parent or carer connected to an academy.

In fact, it is really important that our governors offer a wide range of experiences and perspectives to the academies that they support. The de Ferrers Trust is particularly keen to ensure that our governing bodies represent and champion the diversity of our communities.
