The Governing Body
The College Governing Body comprises members drawn from the local community, the Principal, two staff governors, two parent governors and two student governors.
The Chair of the Governing Body is Dr Ken Hopkins, ex Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Kingston University.
A complete list of the governors is contained in the Governance Procedures (see below).
The Governing Body has three main responsibilities:
- To set the strategic vision for the College.
- To oversee management of the College finances and assets.
- To monitor and maintain the quality of the College's work.
Becoming a Governor
The College welcomes expressions of interest in becoming a governor.
In the first instance, please contact the Principal who will arrange an informal discussion with himself and the Chair.
This document details the composition of the Governing Body, its operating principles and procedures and the roles and responsibilities of governors.
The results of the consultation on this proposal were: no questions, no negative responses and two letters of support.
The governing body, therefore, gives notice of its intention to dissolve the corporation on 1st January 2017 (or as soon as possible thereafter) and to reform as an academy trust, as indicated in the proposal contained in the consultation document. The consultation document can be viewed below.
Proposal to Convert to an Academy
The Chancellor announced in November 2015 that Sixth Form Colleges would be eligible to assume academy status and hence be eligible to reclaim VAT on their expenditure, as is the case with schools. Hereford Sixth Form College has met the conditions required to convert and a consultation document which is a necessary part of the process can be found here:
These are the proposed dates for the meetings of the full governing body and the sub-committees.
Please note that dates might change at short notice.
