Welcome from our Chair of Governors

Dear Parents, Carers and Students

Welcome from the Governors of Chase High. 

The local governing body at Chase High works in partnership with the Brentwood Academies Trust. I am delighted and proud to be the Chair of Governors at Chase High. I am also a Director of Brentwood Academies Trust providing the link between our School and the Trust.

The governing body is very proud of our school and the improvements that have been made. These have been recognised by OFSTED and we are making progress. Chase High is a school the whole of our community can be proud of. We provide excellent opportunities for students, please look through this website to see the types of opportunity on offer. 

The Headteacher and all the staff and governors at Chase High are committed to ensuring the best possible experience and outcomes are on offer for you if you choose to come to Chase. Come and have a look and I am sure you will be impressed.

Yours faithfully

Anthony McGarel - Chair of Governors 

Governing Body 

The role of the Governing Body is to maintain high standards by setting targets for school improvement, assist in the development of strategy, and help sustain the school's good standing in the local community. We have a range of powers and responsibilities which we are legally required to carry out. 

We are immensely proud to be involved in a learning community that encourages and promotes the desire in each individual student to achieve his or her best. Chase High have teachers and support staff who are caring, committed, and extremely hard working as well as highly supportive parents and students that are motivated, friendly and well mannered. 

As part of our responsibility for ensuring that Chase High is a safe, secure environment for its students and staff, the governors take an active interest in all areas of school life. By working closely with the Headteacher and the senior leadership team, and through listening to the views of staff, students, parents and carers we strive to make decisions that result in the best possible education for all of our students. 

Governors are appointed from within the school and the local community so they have knowledge of the school and the population it serves. Membership consists of the Headteacher, Parent Governors, Staff Governors, and Community Governors. 

The Governing Body meets once a month during term time, and a full list of the current members appears below.  All governors are required to undergo a DBS check on appointment and are provided with training on induction and throughout their term of office to ensure a full understanding of the role and responsibilities. 

Each governor agrees to abide by our Code of Conduct and is accountable for their actions under:
