About Governors for Schools
Governors for Schools is a leading national education charity that matches skilled and committed volunteers with schools across England in need of governors. Governors for Schools exists to improve educational standards so that children and young people have the chance to realise their full potential.
We believe the key to improving school performance is effective governance. By finding, nurturing and supporting a committed network of governors we help to drive school improvement, while our training and support ensures governors are equipped to make a positive impact from their first day in the role.
Over the last five years, Governors for Schools has placed over 11,600 volunteers in schools, shaping the lives of over 4.5 million children. Our recent survey found that 9 out of 10 volunteers placed in the last four years are still governors, supporting schools in making the right strategic decisions in an increasingly challenging climate and demonstrating real commitment to the cause.
