Meet Our Governors
Trewidland School Governors form the local Governing Committee (LGC) which reports to the SMART Board. They have strong local connections to the school so this means the local community have a say about how key decisions get made. Each Governor has some responsibility for an area of the LGS's work and attends 'link meetings' with Governors from all the other SMART Schools.
