Governors

We are fortunate at the Chiltern School to have a very supportive and proactive Governing Body, who strive to provide a school that inspires and challenges pupils to learn and achieve.  

The Governors support the pupils’ endeavours and celebrate their achievements and successes.

Full Governor Meetings are held termly, in addition to General Committee Meetings but these can be held more frequently if required.

To contact our Clerk to Governors, Karen Unsworth, please email: clerk@chiltern.beds.sch.uk

All other governors can be contacted by emailing the school: governors@chiltern.beds.sch.uk – your emails will be forwarded to the appropriate governor.

The Governing Body works on the basis of full transparency. Governors’ declaration of business and financial interests can be downloaded below:
