The Board of Governors comprises 13 members representing a wide range of business and community interests as befits an academy of 1,500 students drawn from across the Middlesbrough area. Each governor’s particular expertise is used to challenge policy in key areas of academy life.

The full Board meets twice each term with the Annual General Meeting incorporated into the November meeting. The Board is informed by the audit committee on all matters financial. Separate sub groups have the potential for formation from time to time to discuss specific matters and advise the Board. Individual governors spend many days in the academy to report back on established practice.

The term of office for any governor is four years. At the end of that period all governors, except parent governors for the post of parent governor, can be re-elected.
