About Us

Board of Governors

Our board of governors provide strategic leadership and accountability for Garden City Montessori.   The governors ensure the school’s clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction as well as holding the Head of School to account for the educational progress and general development of the students.  The board members also oversee the financial management of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

The governing board meet at least once each term, though a number of sub-committees also meet throughout the year.  Outside of formal meetings our governors have an active role within the school and are always on hand at open days and other such events.
