Governor Information

The Hilltop Governing Body


The Governing Body works with the school’s Headteacher and her Leadership Team to make sure that Hilltop lives up to its vision  


…to create and maintain a school that gives its children the best possible outcomes they can have.


The Governing Body carries out three roles at Hilltop:

  • Set the strategic direction of the school, ensuring that this is in line with the school’s vision, its ethos and the STRETCH values.
  • Holds the Headteacher and her Leadership Team to account for the quality of provision at Hilltop; to make sure that every child receives the best possible teaching, learns in a nurturing and exciting environment and is making excellent progress in their education as a result.
  • Monitor the school’s academic and financial performance, to ensure that the provision offered by Hilltop results in the children attaining well, compared to their peers across the country, and that the school is making the best use of the money in its budget.

Hilltop governors come from right across the school and wider community.  Some are elected by the parents and staff of Hilltop and some are chosen by the Borough or by the Governing Body itself.  Individually they have wide-ranging skills which the Governing Body uses to carry out its work effectively. Collectively, what they all share is a strong commitment to the school and the children of Hilltop.


An up to date list of governors, a Register of Governor Interests and an Annual Statement of Issues are available on request from the school office.
