Become A Director

Our Directors are a mix of parents and teachers (though the Chair must always be a parent). We can also appoint Directors who can bring a specific skill to the Board (eg communications, financial or legal skills).

Our Directors are charity trustees as well as being Directors of a Company Limited by Guarantee, and any parent from a Member group can stand for nomination to the Board. You can read about becoming a Director of our organisation here.  The nomination form for becoming a Director is available here
