Effective Governors, Excellent Schools
Governors for Schools exists to improve educational standards so that children and young people have the chance to realise their full potential.
We believe the key to improving school performance is effective governance. By finding, nurturing and supporting a committed network of governors we help to drive systematic change in how schools operate. Since 1999, we have been connecting schools across England with skilled and committed volunteers, supported by our business and university partnerships.Apply to be a governor
