Wallington High School for Girls

'A strong learning community. Pupils are proud of their school. The broad curriculum and high prior attainment of pupils lead to strong achievement.' OFSTED 2019



Welcome to WHSG.  In this section you will find a short description of the work of the Local Governing Body (LGB) and some information on becoming a governor.  

The Wallington LGB is a committee of the Girls’ Learning Trust (GLT) Board.  The full work of the LGB can be found in the Governance Handbook (click on Governance Handbook to access). Further information, including a view of the overall trust structure, can also be found on the Girl's Learning Trust website, click here to find out more.

 In summary the role of the LGB at Wallington is to: 

  • set the strategic direction of the school in line with the GLT Strategy
  • monitor and challenge the progress of the school in achieving its priorities
  • ensure the school meets its statutory responsibilities
  • ensure the premises are well managed
  • report to the school's stakeholders  

We have a group of committed and dedicated governors that meets four times a year, once in the Autumn and Spring terms, twice in the Summer term.   They know the school well and bring much needed expertise to their role.  Governors attend many school events and welcome the opportunity to meet parents on an informal basis.  

From time to time we have vacancies for parent and appointment governors and we would welcome an informal discussion with anyone interested in joining us as a governor.

The Chair of the LGB is Mr Hamza Aumeer. The Chair is appointed by the Trust Board annually. A full list of the present governors is set out in the attachment below, together with their responsibilities.
