CHS Governance

Congleton High School Governors have an active role in the life of the School. They play a strategic role in ensuring the quality of educational provision and have responsibility to challenge and monitor the performance of the school. Governors are appointed as representatives of three groups: Appointed, Parent and Staff governors and all serve for a four-year term of office. In addition, the Head Boy and Head Girl are invited each year to join the Local Governing Body as Associate Governors.

If you wish to contact the CHS Local Governing Body Chair, Mr Richard Benson, you can do so by email (click here) or by writing to Mr R Benson, Chair of Governors, Congleton High School, Box Lane, Congleton, CW12 4NS.

Congleton High's Local Governing Body has five Sub-Committees: Finance & Premises; Staffing; Curriculum & Assessment; Student Welfare & Ethos; and Sixth Form General Purposes.
