Governors represent the interests of the local and wider community that the College serves. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring a balanced mix of skills and experience. Their role is to support the College in providing a high quality, effective learning experience for its students in a well-resourced and appropriate learning environment. The Governors agree the strategic direction of the College, set objectives and monitor results. They ensure the solvency of the College and the safeguarding of its assets.
The Governing Body reviews and approves annually the College Plan which provides a framework for the College to achieve excellence. It has approved arrangements for obtaining the views of staff and students on the determination and periodic review of the educational character and mission of the College and the oversight of its activities
Thinking of becoming a Governor
In 2016, Havering Sixth Form College one of the leading providers of Sixth Form Education within the UK, celebrated its 25th anniversary. These are exciting and challenging times for us, with ambitious growth plans and a mission that states "The College aims to be the first choice outstanding provider of full-time education for 16-19 year olds in the area embracing diversity and creating excellent opportunities for all. Staff and students will participate fully in the process of education to reach our collective potential and promote individual achievement at the highest level."
In 2015 we successfully built and opened our latest state-of-the-art teaching space, just one of 6 buildings catering for some 2700 students at our Wingletye Lane Campus. We are committed to continued growth in student numbers and a focus on providing high quality teaching and learning that is designed to enhance the employability and achievement of our students.
