Policies and Governance


The School’s responsibilities and its governance arrangements are set out in its Funding Agreement with the Department for Education and its Memorandum and Articles of Association.


The constitutional role of the School Governors is both that of Charity Trustees and also Company Directors. Broadly speaking the Governors ensure that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the School is clearly defined, that the Principal performs their responsibilities for the educational performance of the School, and that there is a sound, proper and effective use of the School’s financial and other resources. This is achieved through the termly Board of Governors meetings and four main committees:

– Resources

– Pastoral

– Teaching and Learning

– Audit and Risk

The current Governors, who are also Trustees and Directors, can be found on the ‘Our Team‘ page.

To contact the Chair of Governors please email or write c/o University of Birmingham School, 12 Weoley Park Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham, B29 6QU.

The Members and Governors, as well as senior staff, make an annual declaration of interests which includes their date and nature of appointment.
