Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

I believe that a good education is the most important start in life we can give young people and our intention is that when all students leave, they will be well prepared to succeed in the world - in whatever walk of life they choose." Lord Harris of Peckham


The role of governors

Within England, there are over 300,000 School/Academy Governors, who form the largest volunteer force in the country. The roles of individual Governors, and subsequently members of a Governing Body, work collectively to perform a strategic role and carry out key functions such as:

  • Discuss and set the aims and objectives for the Academy.
  • Set the required policies for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Set the required targets for achieving those aims and objectives.
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress that the Academy is making towards it’s set aims and objectives.

Finally the role of role of the Academy Governor is to be a source of challenge and support to the Principal, i.e. a 'critical friend.'


The Governing Body of Harris Girls' Academy Bromley

The Academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the Academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation, (Federation governance details and scheme of delegation can be found here), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the Local Governing Body which is comprised of the Governors of the Academy. Some Governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the Academy or by staff. The details of the Governors at Harris Girls' Academy Bromley are shown below.

The Chair of the Academy Governing Body at Harris Girls' Academy Bromley is Ms Jan Tomlinson.

Ms Tomlinson can be contacted via the Clerk to the Governing Body or via the Academy's address: Harris Girls' Academy Bromley, Lennard Road, Beckenham, BR3 1QR.

The Clerk to the Governing Body is Grazia Sgueglia who can be contacted at
g.sgueglia@harrisbromley.org.uk, or via the Academy's address.
