The Governors of the School have a range of duties and responsibilities laid down in education and charity law. These range over most aspects of school life, from student admissions and staff appointments to the finances and educational provision of the School. Governors are nominated by the United Synagogue (our Foundation Body) and Brent Local Education Authority. Parents and staff are entitled to elect representatives to the Governing Body. The Headteacher sits ex officio as a member of the Governing Body.

The Governing Body has a number of standing committees:

Admissions chaired by Richard Del Monte
Curriculum chaired by Karen Benedyk
Discipline chaired by Philip Bunt
Jewish Education chaired by David Horowitz
Pay, Personnel and Strategy are chaired by Michael Glass
Finance and Premises chaired by Neil Harris

"Governors are highly effective. They are well informed about, and contribute well to, the School's strategic direction and monitor and evaluate its work very effectively."
