The Governing Body is supported in fulfilling its role by various Committees. Each Committee makes regular reports to the Governors:
- setting out recommendations on matters for which it is responsible for giving advice
- noting action taken on matters which the Governing Body has delegated with the proviso that it is kept informed
- conveying any information that is of strategic importance to the College
While not technically a Committee of the Governors, Academic Board makes regular reports to the Governors. It is responsible for the academic work of the College, subject to the general superintendence and control of the Governors, and advises Governors accordingly. The Academic Board has established a range of Committees and has delegated the detailed consideration of academic matters to those Committees, through the co-ordination and management of the Academic Board Executive Committee (ABExCo).
