The Scheme allows for 22 Governors, who are also trustees, 10 of whom are nominated and 12 co-opted. The nominating bodies are as follows:
|The trustees of the General Charity in the City of Coventry (3 governors)|
|The trustees of the Coventry (Church) Municipal Charities (2 governors)|
|The committee of the Bablake Parents’ Association (1 Governor)|
|The committee of the King Henry VIII Parents’ Association (1 Governor)|
|The Council of the University of Warwick (1 Governor); The Vice-Chancellor of Coventry University (1 Governor)|
|The trustees of the Sir Thomas White’s Charity (1 Governor)|
Regardless of nominating body, all Governors are Coventry School Foundation Governors; there are no Governors specific to a particular school.
A Scrutiny Committee selects co-opted governors based on the Governing body’s requirements, skills, competence, interest in independent education and diversity of employ.
The Governors of Coventry School Foundation are legally responsible for the overall management and control of all of the schools. The Governors meet as a full board three times a year and undertake the work of managing the Foundation through a committee structure. A Finance & General Purposes Committee meets at least once a term and is responsible for implementation of most of the Foundation’s policies. It approves the Foundation’s annual budget and oversees all financial activity and building and development. An Academic & Resources Committee is established for each of Bablake and King Henry VIII schools meets up to twice a term. A Major Projects Committee oversees and coordinates the Foundation capital build and spends programme to ensure each project meets the defined needs and provide value for money. Other committees are: the Finance Sub Committee, the Executive Committee, Health & Safety Committee and Child Protection. In addition other sub working groups, for example Marketing and ICT, are established as considered necessary from time to time.
