Governance Vacancies

Some members are elected by parents and staff, others are nominated by the local governing committee for approval by the trust board or co-opted directly by the local governing committee. The role is voluntary, although individuals are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust’s Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.

Videos of some of our trustees and local governing committee members talking about their experience of governing within NEAT are on our YouTube channel.

Our leaflet on ‘Becoming a local governor for NEAT’ below will tell you more about what is involved.

We currently have a vacancy for a trust (foundation) governor to join St. Hild’s Local Governing Committee. If you’re interested in making a difference to the lives of young people in a school that aims to provide a world-class education in a Christian context, please see the Recruitment Pack below.
