The Governing Body of the School is the Council:
The Council's role is to:
oversee decisions about the educational character and mission of the School;
ensure the School's financial and operational viability;
act as arbiter in strategic matters concerning the School's values;
safeguard the reputation of the School.
The Council is not involved in the day to day management of the School.
The Council is comprised of independent, academic and student members, elected by the Court under the Memorandum and Articles of Association. They are Company Directors of the School. The Chair and Vice-Chairs of the Council are the Chair and Vice-Chairs of the Court of Governors.
The Council meets three times per term. There are a number of committees of the Council which are formally constituted with terms of reference. The principal Council committee is the Finance Committee, which advises about financial matters.
