Academy Governing Board

Congratulations, you have taken the first step towards becoming a Governor at James Brindley.

Our pupils are very special and it takes really special people to help them realise their full potential. As a Governor you will bring your expertise either as a parent, business professional or educational leader acting as a critical friend to the Senior Management Team, helping to develop strategies, oversee financial management and trail blaze education.

Governors meet six times every year, and we encourage them to join 2 sub-committees who will also meet five times every year. Meetings usually take place at our Main Base in Bell Barn Road, Birmingham and are on weekdays between 5.00pm and 7.00pm. 

If you’re interested we would love to hear from you.  Please contact Jo Murgatroyd, our Company Secretary at for further details.
