Governors

The School’s governing body was incorporated under the Royal Charter in 1890 and is made up of up to 24 people at any one time. Rossall’s governing Council exists to govern the School in all matters to ensure Rossall School is able to provide a general education of the highest class and to do all things necessary, incidental or conducive to the attainment of this.

The implementation and effectiveness of decisions are monitored either directly by Council or indirectly through sub-committees, including the Finance and General Purposes Committee, the Education Committee, the Compliance and Safeguarding Committee, the Senior Remuneration Committee, the Health and Safety Committee and the Nominations Committee. Council and its sub-committees meet once per term.
