The Governing Body

Governors’ Welcome

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to Eltham Hill School.  The Governing Body are responsible for the conduct and strategic development of the school.  We work very closely with the Principal and Local Authority to ensure students receive an outstanding education within a safe and welcoming environment.

At Eltham Hill we pursue “Excellence, Happiness, and Success”.  So, whether your daughter is in years 7 to 11 or your son or daughter attends our Post 16, we will work with you to develop them to their full potential, leading them to become successful individuals, ready to face the challenges ahead.

The Governing Body is made up of parents/carers, staff, local authority and community representatives.  As a Governing Body we welcome the opportunity of parent/carers to be involved in our school community.  We urge you to play a supportive role with your child’s education and to the school, especially by attending parents’ evenings, school events and sharing any concerns that you may have with the Governing Body.

I look forward to working with you all over the coming terms.
