Our Governors

A message from the Chair of the Governing Board

Welcome to the Governors’ section of The Cottesloe School website. I hope you find the information both interesting and helpful.

The role of the school governor is to act as the critical friend of the school. As Chairman of Governors for The Cottesloe School I am very pleased to have the support of hard working colleagues committed to supporting the Headteacher and the Leadership Team in developing the best possible educational opportunities for our students.

All members of the Governing Board are elected for an initial period of 4 years.

Additional information about governors including mini biographies of the current board what committees there are and who sits on them is available to download in the  documents on the right hand side of the page.

Any correspondence should be addressed to the Chair or the Clerk using this email address: If you have any concerns about the school, or the education we are providing at any time, please discuss the matter with your child's Subject Teacher or Form Tutor at the earliest opportunity. Please do not approach individual Governors with concerns or complaints; they have no power to act on an individual basis.

Interested in becoming a member of the governing board? Please contact the school office.
