Dorothy Stringer School

Register your Interest

The Governing Board is seeking enthusiastic and committed individuals to join an effective cohesive team of people to hold the school to account, to shape the vision of the school and to set the strategic direction. We welcome expressions of interest from all parts of our community and actively seek to reflect the social and cultural diversity of our student intake in our staff.


We don’t expect you to be an expert in education or to have board experience.

We welcome governors from all walks of life to bring different perspectives and views. You just need to be committed to supporting our school community and the educational outcomes of our students.

We are particularly interested in anyone who has the appropriate skills and knowledge or enthusiasm to join the team as the lead governor for human resources (HR). Ideally, we are looking for someone who has an HR background and ideally knowledge of employment law. 


Although governors are volunteers, excellent support and development opportunities are provided through an induction process and full programme of training both face-to-face and online to suit individual needs. There are also opportunities to work alongside experienced governors and to take on a responsibility for an area of the school improvement plan.

When do I need to be available?
