About Us

The Governing Body

The Board of Governors at The Kingsley School, which is a legally constituted Board of the Charity Trust of The Kingsley School, is immensely proud of a school that has flourished for 135 years in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa. A highly regarded education and reputation for pastoral care speaks volumes and serves to attract girls ranging from age 3 to 18 from a wide radius and, in more recent years, boys also in the Prep School. Governors warmly welcome new pupils and provide the assurance that under the leadership of the Headteacher, Ms Heather Owens, and the complete team at The Kingsley School, a first class education and warm and caring environment is assured.

The Board of Governors comprises 12 Governors with a wide variety of experience, expertise and perspective to include education, law and business. Two of the governors also have children currently being educated at Kingsley.

Governors give of their expertise and time voluntarily  and whilst most visible at school events, behind the scenes they are responsible for the overall management of The Kingsley School. Day to day management is delegated to the Senior Leadership Team under the direction of the Headteacher, Ms Heather Owens, who reports to the Governors and various Sub Committees of the Board of Governors.

Sub committees include Education, Welfare Health and Safety, Business and Finance, the Development Board and the Strategic Working Group.

The Board of Governors provides strategic leadership and holds the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils. It acts as a ‘critical friend’, supporting the work of the Headteacher and other staff and ensures that the school conforms to legal standards. The Board is also responsible for the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

We look forward to seeing you during the course of your child’s education at Kingsley.
