Governance Home

Brannel School is part of the Newquay Education Trust.


As a charity and company limited by guarantee, the Trust is governed by a Board of Directors who have overall responsibility and ultimate decision making authority for all the work of the Trust. More information on the governance arrangements of the Trust are available on the NET website.

In order to assist with the discharge of their responsibilities, the Directors have established a Local Governing Body (LGB) in each of the Academies. The governorship of the LGB is comprised as follows:

  • CEO for Newquay Education Trust
  • Headteacher of the Academy
  • Up to two elected staff governors
  • Up to three elected parent governors
  • Up to three community governors appointed by Directors

The term of office for any governor is four years, with the exception of the CEO and Headteacher who remain a governor for the duration of their employment in post.

The LGB of Brannel School are all volunteers who represent the community and help shape the direction and aims of the School. The LGB meets at least once every term.

For more details, or if you are interested in becoming a Governor of Brannel School, please contact us through our Clerk to the Governing Body (Mrs C Thomas) who will advise on Governor Eligibility criteria and current vacancies. [email protected]
