A number of opportunities have arisen on our School Advisory Board of Governors.

Ingleby Manor School & Sixth Form is looking to recruit experienced governors, retired or current business professionals and parents to join the School Advisory Board of Governors. The role of a governor is important in the life and development of the school. The role in joining the SAB would be to challenge the Principal and his senior team to deliver the highest quality of education to the students at Ingleby Manor School. It is a challenging role, but it is rewarding to know that you have really contributed to the education of the students and the life of the staff at the school.

Governors are expected to attend 6 full governing body meetings per academic year (reading any documents provided with the agenda and preparing questions beforehand is an essential part of the role) along with any required training to support you in this role.

Governors who form the SAB also take on a link role, which will require you to have an oversight of some aspect of the school. For example, governors oversee discipline, pastoral care, finance, safeguarding and curriculum areas, to name a few. The link governor will report back to the SAB and the insight gained will be used to apply continuous improvement methods within school.

There is no payment for the role of Governor, but there is immense satisfaction to be gained by contributing to the education of hundreds of young people in our community.

We very much appreciate the time given by governors and are particularly keen to extend the current expertise of our existing board and so would actively encourage application from people with experience in the following to help move the school forward:

  • Education  
  • Finance & Auditing
  • Health & Safety and Facilities Management
  • Community Partnership
  • Human Resources

Applications are invited from any parent, carer or local professional that does or does not currently have a child in school.

How to apply:

Please complete the attached application form and return via email to Eve Young (Office Manager & Clerk to the Governors) at younge3@inglebymanorschool.org.uk

The deadline for all applications is Monday 15th April 2024

Applications will be reviewed and applicants notified of the outcome by 30th April 2024

Thank you for your interest in Ingleby Manor School.
