Woodford House is governed by a strong and balanced Board of Proprietors and Board of Trustees.
The Board of Proprietors is responsible for the ownership and maintenance of Woodford House land and buildings, the preservation of the Special Character of the School and Boarding House operations.
Twelve board members are appointed for four years, renewable for a maximum further four years including representatives from current and former parents, the Parents’ Association and the Old Girls’ Association.
The Board seeks to maintain a balance of personnel representing geographic, gender, boarding, day girl, rural and urban interests. Usually a prospective Proprietor is unofficially approached to determine whether he/she has the time and willingness to serve as a Proprietor. If so, a curriculum vitae is then circulated among Board Members who vote on the appointment. However, any parent who is interested in either joining the Board of Proprietors, or promoting the candidature of another, is encouraged to advise a current Proprietor of such interest, and provide a CV in support.
The Board of Trustees governs the Woodford House day school and is made up of five elected parent representatives, up to four Proprietors’ representatives, a member of staff, a student representative and the Principal.
