The Governors of Longdendale High School are a group of dedicated people who work together as a team, united by our commitment to the school and our responsibility for its long-term success.

 

As a school we have been supported by a fantastic governing board, who give so freely of their time to support and challenge the school and staff to ensure the highest quality provision and opportunities for all our students.  They have played a key role in securing the continued improvement and success of the school and we are delighted they were awarded the prestigious ‘Governor Mark Award’ in May this year.  The assessor noted that ‘This is a highly skilled, reflective governing board where the governing board’s relentless drive for effective governance, strategic leadership and ensuring positive outcomes for all students is clear’. 

 

The relentless focus and work the governors put in to support the school is clear and will continue in the establishment of the new governing board.


The reformed Local Governing Advisory Board for the academy has 5 core functions:  

  • To support with any operational management issues at individual academy level
  • To communicate with staff, pupils and parents
  • To celebrate the academy’s achievements
  • To provide an interface with the local community
  • To ensure that the academy becomes a genuine hub of the community
