Hope Valley College joined Chorus Education Trust on 1 September 2019. Governance is undertaken by a Transition Board of Governors, appointed by the Chorus Board of Trustees. You can find out more about the membership of the Transition Board here.
In February 2020 we will be recruiting for a new Board of Governors, who will shadow the Transition Board from April 2020 until the end of the academic year. The aim is for the new Board to then take over responsibility for governance from September 2020.
These arrangements are a response to the judgements from the 2017 Ofsted Report to ‘improve the skills, knowledge and understanding of the governing body so that it is better able to hold leaders to account’. The function of the Transition Board is to set in place leadership and governance which will result in a judgement of Good or Outstanding.
