Interested in becoming a School Governor?

As volunteers, school governors carry out one of the most important and satisfying jobs in the education sector.

School governors are drawn from all walks of life, with each bringing his or her unique skills and experience to the role of school leadership. In Norfolk we have approximately 5500 governors – local people serving the schools and young people in their local communities.

You do not have to be a working professional, just someone who wants to be involved and make a difference.
