We are a dedicated group of community, parent and staff governors who support and challenge the Headteacher in providing the best education for the children of Sherborne C of E Primary School. All of our governors are from the local area and have strong links to our school. The main governing body meets twice a term with other sub-committees meeting more regularly as needed to discuss specific areas of interest.

All of our governors visit the school regularly on an informal basis supporting us in our many activities. The governors also formally visit the school individually at least once a year.
