Advisory Governors

Kew Green benefits from having an Advisory Governing Body. This is made up of the Headmaster, Deputy Head, an elected Teacher Governor, elected Parent Governor and a number of individuals chosen for their experience in business and education, one of whom acts as the Chairperson. The body meets once a term to discuss all matters relating to the school and its future and to pass on advice to the Headmaster and proprietors of Kew Green Preparatory School (Gardener Schools Group). The Advisory Governors have no financial oversight with the school and do not manage the school but are there to put forward an independent point of view.

Please note, the Parent Governor is the spokesperson for parents. He or she can be approached to deal with your queries and raise educational or non-educational matters with the governing body. The Advisory Governors constitution is available upon request at the school office.
