Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

The Role of Governors

In England there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country.

Members of Academy Governing Bodies work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out various key functions, including:

  • Discuss and set aims and objectives for the Academy;
  • Ratify the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives;
  • Approve/Agree the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives;
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards its set aims and objectives.

The role of the Academy Governor is to provide challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. be a 'critical friend'.

The Governing Body of Harris Clapham Sixth Form

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found here) but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Academy Governing Body which is comprised of the Governors of the Academy. Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or carers of students at the Academy, or by staff. The details of the Governors at Harris Clapham Sixth Form are shown below.

  • The Chair of the Academy Governing Body is Emily Gill. Ms Gill can be contacted via Harris Clapham Sixth Form's address or via the Clerk to the Governing Body
  • The Safeguarding Governor is Mr Scott Bailey.
  • The Clerk to the Governing Body is Ms Holly Eldridge who can be contacted on 0204 542 4900
