Bryanston School

Inspiring Governance is extremely pleased to announce Bryanston School as the first UK independent school to sign our School Governor Champion Charter.

This is a fantastic opportunity for staff in schools across the independent and state sector to share best practice and to make a positive difference to the local community.

Mark Mortimer, Headmaster of Bryanston said:

“I am delighted that Bryanston is now working in partnership with Inspiring Governance and I would encourage everyone to consider becoming a school governor. At Bryanston, we are very proud of our involvement in the local community and of the fact that a significant number of our staff are governors in state schools. We all benefit.”

Another spokesperson for the school said:

”At Bryanston, our priority is on the individual, and we extend that focus to individuals in neighbouring schools and colleges. We are steadfast in our approach to cohesion and are excited to strengthen our allegiances with other schools, however different or however similar.

We believe that we are better together and that our staff can be part of driving development, creating resilient schools in a time of change.

We aim to use our guiding principles of creativity, breadth of ambition, individuality, humanity and family, and resilience to challenge issues and pursue excellence”.

Charlotte Willis-Clarke, Geography teacher at Bryanston School said:

“The role of a school governor has never been more important. The changing landscape of the educational world is interdependent with the rapidly evolving social and political climes that we find ourselves in. At Bryanston we aim for progress but, to be clear, progress for all.

I am proud to have worked in both the state and independent sectors and passionately believe that there is more that unites us than divides us. Part of our role as governors is to learn from each other and create opportunities for collaboration as well as striving for excellence within our governing bodies. I am excited to see the positive changes that Bryanston staff can help to create in the future.”
