Why Do We Have Governors?



Tring Park School is a Company Limited by Guarantee and a Registered Charity. The governors, as Trustees, are guardians of the assets of the Charity subject to Charities law and Charity Commission oversight. The Governing Body is responsible for the strategic direction of the School, legal and regulatory compliance including risk management and with responsibility for ensuring the proper control of the School’s finances.

The Governing Body are required to exercise judgement in supporting the Principal and senior staff and evaluating outcomes, including educational attainment, thereby properly holding them to account for delivery of the strategic aims of the School. As Trustees, governors have a duty to collectively deliver the Charity’s objectives, to provide public benefit consistent with the guidance of the Charity Commission and to report annually.

All our governors are unpaid volunteers and come from a cross section of professions ranging from teaching, law, finance, HR, marketing, fundraising, and the performing arts.

The full board of governors meets at least three time per year and in addition there are sub-committees with oversight of finance, education, marketing and development & fundraising. Governors also attend shows and come into school to meet staff and pupils to enable them to get a better understanding of the school day and how the school is achieving effective teaching & learning outcomes. Governors take an active role in the life of the school seeking to raise standards and enhance the overall pupil/student experience.


Tring Park School is committed to acting in the best interests of the child. We are dedicated to nurturing the wellbeing of all our pupils and recognise our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote their welfare.
