The Local Governing Body, was formed from the previous Governors of the former Hawthorns Community School in September 2013, which works closely with the Enquire Learning Trust to fulfill many statutory duties and responsibilities.

The vital challenge provided as critical friends is welcomed by the leadership of the school.

The Governors want the very best opportunities for the children attending Hawthorns School and all have a passion not to accept anything less than the best. The Governors work within a framework established by the Department of Education to ensure that at Hawthorns School there is:

  • clear clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • sound allocation of financial resources and that those resources are used for that purpose intended.
  • a high level of accountability by the leadership of the school for the educational outcomes of the school.

Governors come from many walks of life and this provided a rich and diverse level of expertise which is valued and recognised by the school.
