We currently have 2 Parent and 1 Co-opted Governor vacancies at Rossmore School. 

Our School Governing board is made up of Parent, Staff, Local Authority and Co-opted Governors. Co-opted governors include both parents and members of the community.

  • An interest in the performance of the school
  • A desire to contribute to and represent the community
  • An open and enquiring mind
  • The ability to look at issues objectively
  • The confidence to ask questions and join in debate
  • A willingness to listen and make informed judgements
  • The ability to work well with others

The Governors and Head Teacher of Rossmore School wish to appoint an enthusiastic, dedicated, hard-working team member to manage the site of our lovely school.
