The Local Academy Board has a vacancy for two parent governors and is looking for parents or grandparents who are interested in this role and who have children at Spa academy.
As a governor, you will normally hold office for a period of 2 years, even if your child leaves the academy during this time. You can, however, resign from the Local Academy Board at any time.
The Local Academy Board is responsible for both the conduct of the academy and for promoting high standards.
