The role of Governors is to oversee the strategic development of the school and to advise and support the school leadership team. Governors are tasked with supporting and challenging the headteacher and the leadership team, to monitor progress towards improvement priorities and to make decisions around staffing and the school budget. Their role is not one of day to day management of the school: that is the role of school leaders.

Our Governors come from a wide variety of backgrounds and include those appointed from the member of the local community and parent and staff Governors. As such they are volunteers who are prepared to give significant amounts of time and energy to supporting the development of the School.

Should you need to contact any member of the governing body please contact the Head’s PA via email, alternatively you can contact the Chair of Governors on

We are currently advertising for School Governors.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Sir William Romney’s in Tetbury governing body. We are a good local comprehensive school with a newly appointed Headteacher starting at the school in September and as part of The Athelstan Trust, we believe local governors who know their local communities well are essential to help the school flourish and improve even more. Anyone with a business, finance or education background would be particularly welcome as candidates. However, more important qualifications are enthusiasm, commitment to the education of all our students, the ability to make meetings a priority, a willingness to support and challenge, and the availability to come into school during the day from time to time. If you have any questions about the governor’s role, please contact the Chair of Governors Anna Herbert (email address:
