Havering Local Board

Welcome to the Havering Local Board page of our website. We are delighted that you want to find out about the Havering Colleges Local Board and hope you will find everything you need here. However, if you would like any more information, please contact Cathy Horne, Head of Governance - Havering, by email at

The Havering Colleges are part of New City College and the Havering Local Board is a committee of the New City College Corporation.

The Members of the Havering Local Board represent the interests of the local and wider community and support the Havering Colleges in providing a high quality, effective learning experience for its students in well-resourced and appropriate learning environments.  Members are volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds who bring a mix of expertise, experience, energy and commitment.

The Havering Local Board, comprising 18 members and supported by the Head of Governance - Havering, meets six times each year. There are also two annual strategy sessions as well as regular training and development opportunities.

Members also have informal opportunities to visit the Colleges throughout the year, attending events such as awards evenings, drama productions and art exhibitions.  Some members become Link Governors which enables them to visit curriculum and support areas during the day to gain a deeper understanding of College life. 

Thinking of becoming a Member

Although there are currently no vacancies for Independent Members on the Havering Local Board, we are always keen to talk to interested people. If you feel you could offer something which could help to improve both the Colleges and the lives of local young people, we would love to hear from you.
