Achieving more

How To Become A Governor


Becoming a school governor is a valuable and rewarding way to serve your local community and help Ambler’s children achieve more.

We’d love to hear from anyone who feels they have the skills, experience and enthusiasm to be a governor. Please email or speak to the Headteacher who can explain the process, what vacancies are available and what the role involves.


What can I expect?

You’ll be joining a hard-working and committed group of governors who take their leadership role very seriously.

Governors usually serve a four year term of office once appointed or elected, and broadly speaking each year you’ll need to:

  • attend three meetings of the full governing body during each school year
  • attend one meeting a term for every committee of the governing body you sit on
  • visit the school once a term and prepare a follow up report for your fellow governors each time
  • get involved with some case work in respect of pupils or staff, e.g. attending a disciplinary hearing
