Good governors

Friday 28 June 2019

The Good Governor is an ideal primer for governors, senior leaders and prospective governors at independent schools.

Written by Brian Greenwood, with his 50 years of being a governor, the book covers the joys and responsibilities of being a good governor. His straightforward approach outlines the key areas of governor behaviour, including:

  •          the responsibilities of the governing body, subcommittees and working parties
  •          the importance of governor induction
  •          the most effective ways of holding meetings
  •          the role of an effective chair

The book also includes a list of useful educational acronyms and contact details for independent school bodies.


“If you are considering becoming a Governor, just joined the Board or if you have recently taken on the responsibility of chairing the Board, you will find something helpful in this book.

“It's easy to read, conversational style provides the reader not only with good advice, it also gives more than a hint of the pleasure a school Governor can derive from their service to a school.”
