The Governing Body is the strategic leader and critical friend of the school and represents the community’s interests, ensuring The Chase provides a high-quality education for its students in a positive and supportive learning environment.


The Governing Body has three core strategic functions:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students, and the performance of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring the money available to the school is well-spent.


The Governing Body appoints the Headteacher, and delegates the day-to-day operation of the school to the Headteacher.


The Chair of Governors, Mr Adrian Thompson, (or any other Governor) can be contacted by emailing the Clerk to the Governors, Leena Batchelor or The Chair of Governors directly at
