The Governing Body is supported in fulfilling its role by various Committees and by the Academic Board. Each of these bodies 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
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).
