Apply to be a school governor

There are different types of School Governors.

If you are interested in becoming a school governor there are several ways to apply:

  • If you have a child of school age, ask at the school about the possibility of standing for election as a parent governor
  • If you are interested in serving as a governor at a particular school, you can approach the school directly about becoming a co-opted governor
  • If you'd like to be a local authority or co-opted governor in Manchester you can apply for vacancies online
  • Ask your local church if they are planning to appoint a foundation governor to the local school
