Rainhill High School is looking to recruit Governors


A small number of posts have become available in our local governing body. Our recent review of the skills and experience in our existing has identified various needs to complement the existing team.

Local Governing Body – We are looking for Senior Professionals with experience of board level decision making and anyone with recent/existing experience of the education sector (preferably 11-18) at a senior level.

What is a school Governor? Governors make decisions about the future of schools; they decide how funding is spent, support and challenge leaders, guide what children learn and the values they live by. These decisions influence the direction of the school and ultimately shape young people’s opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Why become a Governor?

Bring a different way of thinking – being part of a group of people that have different insights and experiences ensures balanced conversations.

Be a role model – if young people see people like them in roles across the school, including on governing boards, this will give them confidence in what they can achieve and raise their aspirations.

Give your local community confidence in its schools – having a diverse governing board provides a connectedness between a school and its community. It shows that the governing board is making an effort to understand the lives and context people from across the community.

Provide insight on issues faced by young people – be able to offer a much-needed insight into the lives young people are living.

Help create a culture of inclusion – being part of a diverse and inclusive governing board is vital in setting the culture and being a catalyst for change for diversity to thrive at all levels throughout the school.

Gain skills to grow yourself – there are lots of skills and experience to be gained by becoming a school governor. This is a strategic, board level role where you are involved in lots of conversations and collective decisions – regular disciplines covered include finance, human resources and communications whilst plenty of softer skills can be utilised.
