Board of Trustees’ Role

First and foremost, Boards are accountable for student achievement. They exercise their prime accountability by providing an environment for and monitoring the delivery of quality educational outcomes. They are responsible for ensuring that they focus their strategic planning on improving student achievement and teaching and learning programmes. This requires the Board to work towards continuous improvement and to:

  • use up to date information
  • use both internal and external data to identify strengths and weaknesses
  • set challenging targets for achievement
  • analyse closely, continually monitoring progress towards targets
  • make adjustments as necessary
  • 2021 Annual Report
