All different. All equal. All achieving.

Governor Details

Governors at Samuel Cody Specialist Sports College come from all walks of life.  As volunteers we give time to further the School’s development and make a positive contribution to education and the community.

Through collective discussion and continuous monitoring and evaluation of the School’s performance, decisions are made in the interests of cost effective management of the school, its direction and development.

We meet regularly throughout the year with the Headteacher and members of the Senior Leadership Team to help shape the future of Samuel Cody Specialist Sports College for the benefit of the students.
