The Governors at Vyners are committed to working in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff, parents, students and the local community in developing a positive, successful, creative and supportive learning environment for the students at Vyners.

The Local Governing Body's main duties are to:

  • Set the strategic direction, policies and objectives of the school
  • Set appropriate targets for student achievement at each Key Stage
  • Critically review the school's budget and development plans
  • Review progress against the school's budget and objectives
  • Challenge and support the Headteacher

If you believe you have the skills, experience and the time needed and would like to become a governor please contact Janet Beater, the Clerk to the Board of Trustees, by email for more information (

Detailed below is information about the governance of both the school and Vanguard Learning Trust of which we are a member.

Mark Hague - Chair of Governors

Vanguard Learning Trust

Vanguard Learning Trust was first established as Vyners School Academy Trust in October 2011.  When Ryefield Primary School joined the Trust on 1st February 2015 the name was changed to Vyners Learning Trust.  The name was changed again to Vanguard Learning Trust on 29th March 2018, to facilitate further expansion.  The Trust was delighted to welcome Ruislip High School on 1 September 2018, and Field End Junior School / Hermitage Primary School in September 2021.

Whilst Trust schools retain their individual identities and their own Local Governing Body, they operate as the same legal entity with a single Board of Trustees who have responsibility to ensure that the vision and values of the Trust are lived up to at each school and that each Local Governing Body is held accountable for the highest levels of teaching and learning within their schools.  

The Trust has its own website, with full details of its governance arrangements.  Copies of our statutory accounts may also be found on the Trust website.
