School Governor - Miltoncross Secondary School

Miltoncross Academy is a Portsmouth co-educational secondary school with about 850 pupils aged 11-16.

We currently have 4 Authority, 2 Parent and 2 Teacher Governors. We would like to recruit 1 new Governor. New Governors need no formal qualification. However, they must be able to take an active role in supporting and challenging Leaders in our School, be a good listener and be a critical friend to our excellent pupils and teachers. Training and induction is provided by the Trust and School. All new Governors are shadowed by a mentor. DBS will be provided by our School

Governors meet 6 times per year on a Tuesday evening 5:30 to 7;00pm either in School or virtually. Each Governor is allocated at least one area of responsibility depending on their professional experience.

Governors will occasionally be required to form a panel to hear Permanent Exclusions, Pay Appeals, recruiting and dismissals. Governors are expected to play an active role in our School. You can expect to spend about 2-3 hours per month to attend meetings, attend important parent/pupil gatherings and read reports


You do not need to be a Portsmouth resident but you will need to have a good understanding of our community, infrastructure, housing and the people who live in the community that Miltoncross Academy serves.
