The Board of Governors is responsible for the overall conduct and strategic direction of the school rather than its day to day operation. Collectively, the Board is responsible for shaping policy and identifying strategic objectives; ensuring compliance with statutory obligations; taking stock of the school’s development plan and protecting the school’s assets. More specifically, the Board appoints the Head and the Bursar and advises on the appointment of the senior management team; it also monitors the effectiveness of the management structure and takes an informed view on the School’s educational performance and the interests and welfare of the whole School community. The Board of Governors has a particular duty to review the school’s short and long term financial position and approves major investment, budgets and salaries. The current Board, which meets termly, comprises the Chairman and a team of six others, ensuring a balance of experience and sector expertise.
The Chairman of the Governors, Mr John Tucker, may be contacted through the Secretary to the Governing Body and Bursar, Mr Philip Walker, or by letter: c/o The Study Preparatory School, Wilberforce House, Camp Road, London, SW19 4UN.
