The John Leggott College Corporation ,(or Governing Body, as it is also known) plays a crucial and varied role in contributing to the success of the College. Over the years, Governors have strived to forge positive relationships with the staff, students, parents and members of the wider community. The Corporation is responsible for a whole host of decisions and activities, details of which can be found within this section of the website. If you are interested further in the work of the Corporation then please contact our Clerk Becky Robinson.
Members of the Corporation and the Clerk are entitled to attend every meeting of the Corporation including committees. If someone wishes to attend a meeting who is not a member of the Clerk then this shall be decided by the Corporation.
