Governors

Our governing board has overall responsibility for the running of the school.  Governors work closely with the school leadership team and staff to plan improvement strategies to make Hob Hill the best school it can be.

The governing board is made up of parents and staff, as well as Church, community and local authority representatives.

If you would like more information about our governing board, please contact:

  • Mr Nigel Argust, Chair of Governors
  • Mrs Vickie Roberts, Vice Chair of Governors
  • Mrs Lisa Gallear, Staff Governor (Bursar)

They can be contacted via the school office.

The governing board meets five times per year.  There are also separate committees for Finance, Pay, Appeals, Headteacher Performance Management, which meet termly or as required.  Minutes of full governing board meetings can be found below.  A copy of our 'instrument of government', which details the constitution of our governing board, can be found here.
