Governance Arrangements Consultation

TSC Logo

The College is proposing to make a minor change to its governance arrangements and is consulting with parents, staff and the local authority. 

At the moment the college is a “Foundation Trust School”. This means that a separate Trust body known as the Westlands Trust has the right to nominate two places on the College’s governing body. This has been the position since 2010, but the Trust is no longer active in school life and it means that there are always two vacancies on the College governing body which cannot be filled.  Therefore the College proposes to close the Trust and change category to a Foundation School. This will mean the College will be able to recruit additional governors.

This change would not affect the day to day running of the College. The Principal will still lead the College overseen by the governing body and the College will continue to be the employer of staff. 

Update
The College has now completed an informal consultation over this proposal and has decided to move the formal consultation stage. A Public Notice has been published in the local Newspaper proposing to make this change to arrangements with effect from 1 June 2019. If you have any comments or questions about the formal proposal please email enquiries@thespirescollege.com or write to the PA to the Principal at the College. The closing date for comments is 8 May 2019
