Governing Body

Governors and friends of Merit

There is s a hardworking and committed team of Governors who support Merit and give up their time to attend meetings and events. We are very grateful to the people identified below and appreciate and value their time and input.  They act as a ‘critical friend’, regularly bringing another perspective and often challenge to Merit.

In addition to Governors we have a number of parents and other professionals who, through regular contact, have become more than mere stakeholders and again influence Merit by questioning and challenging as well as supporting and assisting us in ensuring our students receive the very best we can give them.
