The school is a tenant of the company which owns the land, bought by the founders for the purposes of locating the school. A board of Trustees, made up of ex-governors, provides the link and serves the long-term interests of the original founders.
The Board comprises a Chairman, Deputy Chairman, and various chairs of sub-committees. The various sub-committees meet regularly and assist the Board and Heads in managing the school and providing guidance and wisdom when necessary.
No Board members (save for the management employed by the school) or trustees receive remuneration of any nature from the school or any related entity, and serve on an entirely voluntary basis.
