Governance & Scheme of Delegation (Academies)

Within England there are over 300,000 school/academy governors, who together form the largest volunteer force in the country. Governors perform a strategic role and carry out key functions such as:

  • Discussing and setting the aims and objectives for the academy
  • Setting the required policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitoring and evaluating the progress that the academy is making towards its set aims and objectives.

Governors are also ‘critical friends’ to the Principal, providing challenge and support.


Our Governors

The academy is a member of the Harris Federation. Ultimate responsibility for the academy rests with the Board of Trustees of the Federation (see the Federation's governance details and scheme of delegation), but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the local Governing Body which comprises of the governors of the academy. Some governors are appointed by the Federation whilst others are elected by parents or guardians of students at the academy or by staff.

The Chair of Governors is Ms Janice Tomlinson, who can be contacted via the Clerk to the Governing Body or via the Academy's address - Harris Academy Orpington, Tintagel Road, Orpington, Kent, BR5 4LG.  

The Clerk to the Governing Body at Harris Academy Orpington is Mrs Helen Rumble. Mrs Rumble can be contacted via email at ClerktoGovernors@harrisorpington.org.uk
