Arts & Media School Islington is a Foundation Trust School. On the board of trustees are, Jill Barton (Chair), Susan Service, John Prince, Steve Moffitt, Mary Kalemkerian, Adam Nell, Lyndsey Pugh, David Hagarty, Mark Owen, Carol Fletcher, Stephen Davis, and Victoria Phillips. The Trustees are keen to see facilities, such as the theatre, used as a resource for the local community and host an Education Lecture each year.

The governing body is responsible for ensuring that Arts & Media School is run to promote pupil achievement and delivers a quality educational experience.

Its duties include:

  • Setting strategic direction, policies and objectives.
  • Approving the school budget.
  • Reviewing progress against the school’s budget and objectives.
  • Appointing, challenging and supporting the headteacher.

The governing body is made up of:

  • Parent Governors (elected by parents).
  • Staff Representatives (elected by school staff).
  • Local Authority Governors (appointed by the local authority).
  • Community Governors (members of the local community appointed by the governing body).
  • Governing bodies make their decisions based on the advice of committees that deal with specific issues, such as the school’s curriculum, premises or finances.

We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor on our school’s governing body.
