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. Information about the governors at Ranikhet Academy is available below.

If you are interested in joining the Local Governing Board please check the school newsletter where vacancies are advertised.

 A Register of Governor Interests is kept so that the breadth of skills needs to run the Governing Board is in place.


REAch 2 Academy Governance

REAch2 is a charitable voluntary organisation which relies on the valuable input of a considerable number of non-executive volunteers, supported by an experienced team of staff.

The governance principles of REAch2 recognise the importance of developing relationships with a common purpose and they are about developing processes and structures. The effective governance of the Trust is supported by:

  • Trust members – the guardians of the constitution

  • Trust Board – the Directors / Trustees

  • Trust sub-committees

  • Regional Boards and their sub committees – including Regional Ambassadors

  • Local Governing Bodies – the local governors

  • The Executive Team
