The Governing Body of Sir John Cass and Redcoat Church of England Secondary School is fully committed to ensuring that the school provides the best possible education for the students in their care.  We are members of the National Governors Association (NGA) and aspire to hold their Governor Mark, an NGA approved quality standard for Governing Bodies that demonstrates sustainable excellence in school governance within the context of the school’s leadership and management structure.

School Governors provide strategic direction for the school.  They agree priorities and targets and monitor progress towards them.  In order to provide that leadership, they offer constructive support and challenge to the school leadership team and make key decisions necessary to ensuring that the school fulfils its legal duties.
