By joining the Board of Governors at Rye you will help to ensure the school’s continued financial viability and strong academic standards that underpin pupils’ success.  Governors shape the future strategy of the school and give support to the Head. Acting as a ‘critical friend’ you provide an independent and objective viewpoint as well as your expert knowledge and advice, and act as a sounding board for new ideas.

As a Governor you will be supported by the Association of Governing Bodies of Independent Schools (AGBIS) which offers a range of high quality seminars and training materials to help you understand and fulfil the responsibilities of the role.  For more information visit the AGBIS website.
