Governors

Twickenham School governing body is made up of people from the school's community. Their role, together with the Headteacher, is to set the future direction of the school. The governing body makes decisions on issues such as performance targets, school policies and the School Development Plan. Because our governors have a variety of skills and experience, they are able to support and advise the Headteacher, as well as responding to government initiatives and inspection recommendations.

Members of the Governing Body:
