Governor Opportunities

Rye Hills is an Academy with a core purpose of raising aspiration and achievement. We have a clear commitment to high standards and the equal worth and success of every learner.  We develop learning skills and personal qualities both in and out of the classroom and promote learning as an enjoyable and challenging experience. We protect and nurture in a supportive environment that is safe and creates a sense of belonging. Rye Hills Academy is a place where together we have the opportunity to achieve success every day and build the academic and social skills that are necessary for life in the adult world.

Your role as a governor would be to promote the ethos of Rye Hills Academy, whilst also considering the interests of the Trust, its Academies; the staff, students and parents. To help you in your role you will receive training and support.

A certain level of time commitment is required to fulfill your responsibilities as a governor, including time to attend meetings and to read papers prior to these meetings. Governors are expected to have the ability to build relationships and to be able to critically challenge and support those responsible for the management and direction of the Academy and Trust.

Becoming a governor is a very fulfilling and rewarding role. If you are interested, we would like to hear from you.
