Local Governor positions in Anthem schools

Anthem is looking for individuals to join the local governing body of St Mark’s Church of England Academy, who have the time, energy and commitment to make a difference to the lives of children and young people.

We particularly welcome local businesspeople and individuals with skills or experience in areas such as educational standards, safeguarding, human resources, health & safety and marketing. Selection is based on the completion of an application form and skills audit, meeting the Chair of Local Governors and the Headteacher and a short interview with the Anthem Education Director.

The school is part of Anthem, an education charity that runs a group of state-funded primary and secondary schools to give children a better future. Our schools work in collaboration as one entity to improve and maintain high educational standards, experiences and outcomes across the Trust. Our single legal and moral purpose is to advance education for public benefit.

What does it involve?

As a Local Governor, you would be expected to commit to at least one meeting per term, usually from 3pm to 5pm, attend relevant training and occasionally complete a visit during the school day. Teamwork, enthusiasm and the ability to ask questions, listen and learn, also play a big part.
