Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


The Local Governing Board at Ranikhet Academy is made up of parents, school staff, members of the local community and REAch2 appointed governors. Governors hold the school to account, they meet each term through 'Full Governing Board ' meetings and committee meetings.

The governors have a wide range of responsibilities including:

  • Appointing teaching and support staff of the school

  • The school budget

  • Oversight of school management

  • Oversight of policies and major decisions concerning the general direction of the school

Some governors have responsibility for a specific area such as safeguarding, SEN provision or finance.
