Welcome to the Governors section of the Helston Community College website.

The Governing Body of our College provide challenge and support to the Senior Leadership team, with an important part to play in helping the College set a strategic direction, and provide the best education possible.

Our Governing Body consists of members drawn from the local community, parents, staff, the Trust Board and those appointed by the Council. When a vacancy occurs for parent Governors, elections are held, and we welcome and encourage parents to volunteer.

In our latest Ofsted inspection, our Governing Body was judged to be “outstanding” and their work is greatly valued by the staff, parents and students of the College.
