School Governor (TD)

Oxted School, part of The Howard Partnership Trust, is amongst the largest and most dynamic comprehensive schools in the country.

Nestled at the foot of the North Downs in the lush countryside of East Surrey, the school has a unique character and ethos which draws out the best from every individual student who we have the privilege to educate.

Founded in 1929, Oxted School is strongly rooted in the local community, and combines the traditions and values of the last 87 years with the very best facilities and the latest developments in Quality First Teaching. Our size allows us to provide a very broad curriculum and an extensive range of opportunities for our students. However, we work very hard to make a large school ‘feel’ small and ensure our students have a clear sense of belonging. Consequently, we believe that students get the best of both worlds: all the diversity and opportunity a large school brings with the personalised care, guidance and support a small school offers.

A personalised approach to education is at the heart of everything we do at Oxted, and students are provided with a broad curriculum catering for all interests. Students are encouraged to take pride in their work, and develop a passion for learning and personal development which will remain with them for the rest of their lives.

What skills do I need?

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the Governing Body's work. However it would be beneficial if you have the following;

An interest in the education of children. 

Good communication skills both in listening and expression

An ability to make use of a wide range of information and data

A commitment to equal opportunities and to securing the best educational outcomes for all young people

The ability to work as a member of a team

An ability to respect confidentiality

A willingness to participate in training and development activities.
