Queen Mary's Grammar School Governing Body 2017-18

The legal responsibility for the school rests with the Board of Governors. Under the constitution of the school as an Academy, Members are appointed under the Articles of Association (who in the case of the Queen Mary’s Foundation are also the Foundation Trustees) and who are responsible for appointing Foundation Governors (who form the majority of the Governors at the school).

There are four categories of Governor: Foundation Governors, Parent Governors, and Staff Governors, who may then appoint Co-Opted Governors. The Headmaster is a Governor as of right. Parent Governors are elected by the parents, and the Staff Governors by the Staff: one from the teaching staff, and one from the associate staff.

There were until the end of 2016-17 two main committees, the Pastoral and Curriculum Committee (of which the present Chair was Jane Bonner) and the Business Committee (of which the Chair was Paul Allan Lee). The business of the Committees has been subsumed into the main meeting of the Board of Governors. There are also Committees dealing with Admissions, Appeals, Staffing, Pupil Discipline and Pay which are convened when required.
