Governor’s Welcome

Welcome to the Great Marlow School website and thank you for your interest in our academy. In the pages of this website, we hope you enjoy discovering how much enthusiasm and joy of learning the school generates, the pride there is in our academic success and the impressive number of extra-curricular activities on offer.

The Governing Board is very proud to be part of the community of this thriving and oversubscribed school; we are committed to working school-frontwith Mr Ford the Headteacher and his leadership team to ensure that the drive and passion for even greater success continues.

Our aim is to continue to provide a high class learning environment that enables our students to reach their full potential. We wish to inspire them, the staff and the wider community to be compassionate, successful and resilient contributors to a better society.

As the Governing Board we are responsible for both the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards.  We set a vision for the school and ensure the school works efficiently and effectively towards achieving that vision. We do this by building up a thorough knowledge of the school and its community. Our role is to support, but also to constructively challenge the Headteacher and his leadership team by ensuring accountability and compliance.

Governors are appointed to the Governing Body in three ways:

  1. Parent Governors – Elected by parents of Great Marlow School
  2. Community Governors – Appointed for their varied professional skills and community links by the Governing Body
  3. Staff Governors –Elected by the staff of Great Marlow School

We are volunteers but have a range of professional and specialist backgrounds, which support and complement the skills of the leadership team and staff.


Ms S Brooks

Chair of Governors
