The Corporation – The College’s Board of Governors have a crucial role: They make the ‘big’ decisions. That is, they determine the range of education provided, set key goals and hold college management to account for delivering on these.
They have determined the College’s ‘Mission’ as follows:
We believe education changes lives, so we put teaching and learning and the needs of our students first.
Governors seek to ensure that the College provides a high-quality learning experience which enables students to succeed and which meets the needs of the community. They, therefore, provide a ‘bridge’ between the college and the community we serve.
College Goals 2019/20
- To complete our journey to “excellence everywhere”; all schools, programmes and functions to be performing at an “outstanding” level by (or before) summer 2020;
- To meet all of our key financial targets
- To ensure that all 16‐18 learners engage in (and adequately record) Work Related Activity (WRA);
- To continue to improve our facilities, where necessary and affordable.
Professional advice and services to the Governing Body are provided by the Clerk to the Corporation. The Clerk is independent of the College.
