Governors (only applicable if you are an alumni or parent of an alumni)

Windlesham’s Governors, who are trustees of the charity and non-executive directors of the limited company, play an important role at the School. The governing body has three core functions:

  1. To help plan the strategic direction of Windlesham House School
  2. To oversee its financial performance
  3. To hold the Head and the Senior Leadership Team to account.

We are now looking for new governors with both a passion for the school and specific skills and time to commit. We have chosen to open the search for interested people to members of our alumni community and their parents, thereby accessing a wide talent pool.  The commitment varies, depending on the role, but as a minimum it involves three specific committee meetings a year and three Governing Board meetings.  We are looking two new Governors this Summer to replace those stepping down after completing their tenure. The hope is also to gather a list of interested and appropriately skilled potential Governors for the future. Skills of interest include Safeguarding, Finance, Boarding, Health and Safety, Marketing, Technology and Property.

If you are interested, then please contact Emma Harris, the School Bursar and the Clerk to the Governors (eharris@windlesham.com) who can send you the job specification, answer any questions and let you know about the next steps. We look forward to hearing from you.
