Governance

The Governing Body at West Bretton School have a culture of high expectations, aspirations and scholastic excellence for all pupils and work in partnership with school staff to ensure that they are prepared positively for life in modern Britain.  

We are committed to provide a balance of challenge and support to the Headteacher to ensure that every individual reaches their potential both academically and as a well-rounded individual ready to move on to their next challenges in education and life.
