Our Governing Body

The Governors have a statutory role to fulfil the charitable aims of the Foundation “to provide an education for boys and girls in south-east London”. To do this they agree strategic targets for the Foundation and carry out the duties of charity trustees, looking after legal and financial matters, as well as setting the strategic vision for the Foundation and the various priorities that stem from it.

There are 17 Governors in total. Three are ex officio: The Alderman of the Ward of Tower in the City of London and two of the four church wardens of All Hallows by the Tower with St Dunstan in the East. A further two are nominated by the Parochial Church Council of All Hallows. The remaining 12 are known as co-opted Governors and are selected by their predecessors. Members of the Governing Body bring a wide range of skills and experience to their task. 

The Governing Body is broadly based and normally consists of a number of Old Dunstonians along with parents of former and current pupils and educational professionals.  Governors normally serve for five years though this can be extended.
