A message from the Chair of Governors, Graham Luccock

The Governing Body at Sale High School is clear that the school is a vital part of the community it serves. Governors play an important role within the school and work with the headteacher, senior leaders, parents, students and members of the community.

We are, in Sale High School, determined that the success of every student is our primary aim and the school will prepare them for the next steps in their lives around employment, education and their experience in the wider world. Governors are appointed from a variety of backgrounds to support the school and ensure that it is being led and managed well. Our role is also to see that the school achieves the highest possible standards whether it is around achievement of students, excellence in teaching and learning, student behaviour and attendance and the safety and health of everyone in the school community.

We meet regularly at school with the Headteacher and senior leaders as well as attending events such as parents’ evenings, concerts and open days. Our focus at meetings includes the improvement of students’ outcomes, overseeing the school’s finances and ensuring the school estate is fit for purpose. We enjoy and encourage meeting with parents to obtain their views on the school and will ensure their voice is heard through feedback where appropriate.

Governors, along with staff at Sale High School have a passionate commitment to the school and its success in the future. Education is the keystone of young peoples` lives and we want to give everyone the opportunity to succeed and achieve their individual ambitions. If you are interested in becoming a governor, either now or in the future, we welcome applications. Please contact the School and they will give you the relevant details and information.
