Governor - Local Advisory Committee


We are seeking local individuals who can offer their time and expertise to join our Local Advisory Committee. 

The Lunesdale Learning Trust is the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) responsible for the operation of Queen Elizabeth School and QEStudio School, delivering a values led education for the whole community. The MAT works to ensure the schools develop our enduring commitment to the entire community to offer a genuinely comprehensive provision to children in the local area.

Students have the opportunity to study at the highest possible level academically, alongside those pursuing practical and vocational courses, working closely with local businesses or organisations, equipping students with the skills required for their working lives.

Governance within our Multi Academy Trust comprises Members, Trustees and Governors. Governors sit on the Local Advisory Committee and monitor and evaluate the progress the schools are making and act as a source of support and professional challenge to the Executive Headteacher and Leadership Team.

In looking to fill these vacancies we are interested in applications from people with a wide range of skills, such as safeguarding, education, risk management, and health and safety; but this is not essential - what is more important is enthusiasm, interest and the willingness to learn.

If you are interested, please complete our Expression of Interest form and return to the Company Secretary a.johnson@qes.org.uk by Monday 23 May 2022.

Governors are essential for the effectiveness and success of Lunesdale Learning Trust; it is an extremely rewarding and fulfilling role and we recommend you read the attached document and view the following links for more information about the role:
