Introduction - Governing Body & it's Role
The Henley College’s governing body is The Henley College Corporation. The Governors are volunteers from a wide range of backgrounds across the College’s community.
The current Chair of Governors is Peter le Conte, who is supported by two Vice-Chairs: John Aspinall and Simon White.
The Corporation meets regularly and is administered and advised by the Corporation Secretary, Jacky Gearey firstname.lastname@example.org, who is independent of College management and has access to independent professional advice.
The Corporation’s statutory responsibilities are:
(a) determine and review the college’s educational character, mission, vision and values;
(b) approving the college’s quality strategy;
(c) oversee the effective and efficient use of resources, safeguard the solvency of the college;
(d) approving annual estimates of income and expenditure;
(e) appoint, appraise and determine the pay and conditions of senior post holders and set a framework for the pay and conditions of all other staff;
(g) other corporate responsibilities in law, e.g. safeguarding, health & safety.
The Corporation’s role is strategic and it does not involve itself in the day to day management of the college – this is the responsibility of the Principal.
