Staff & Governing Board
The Governing Board
The Headmaster is responsible to the Governing Board which currently comprises 22 Governors and 17 Honorary Governors. The Board bears responsibility in law for the activities of the School and the Headmaster reports formally on these activities each term. Many Governors are Strathallians and parents (past and present) and the composition of the Board covers a range of professional expertise from different parts of the country.
The principal functions of the Board are:
- To monitor and to advise on all aspects of the School’s activities
- The appointment of the principal officers of the School (Headmaster, Bursar and Director of Marketing & Development) and approval of others (Second Master and Chaplain)
- The election of its members and its Chairman
- The control of the School’s finances
All decisions are taken by the full Board, which meets each term. The Executive Committee, which comprises each of the Conveners, meets prior to the main Board Meeting. It also prepares the Budget and proposes Capital Expenditure. The House and Grounds Committee is concerned with the upkeep of School facilities and the Capital Expenditure Programme.
Other sub-committees are the Marketing Committee, which meet once a term and the Education Committee.
