Local Committee

Christ’s College Local Committee (LC)

Christ’s College is part of the Good Shepherd Trust (GST). The GST is a multi-academy trust within the Diocese of Guildford. More information about the GST can be found .

The GST has given the Local Committee (LC) a which shows what the LC is responsible for.

The key functions of the Local Committee are:

  1. Establish the strategic objectives for the school;
  2. Ensure accountability;
  3. Oversee compliance;
  4. Monitor the impact of the pupil premium grant;
  5. Be a source of challenge and support to the Principal (acting as a 'critical friend');
  6. Record visits to the school both during school hours (with prior agreement with the Principal) and other events as appropriate;
  7. Draw any significant recommendations and matters of concern to the attention of the Trust Board via the Link Director of Education/CEO as appropriate.

Declarations of interest are declared and reviewed at LC meetings and are recorded in the minutes.

Our LC members perform a vital service to our College, supporting the delivery of a high quality education by the Principal and staff while ensuring that all aspects are efficiently managed and stay true to our vision, ethos and values

LC meetings are held approximately four times per term.  Part 1 (non-confidential) minutes of these minutes are public documents and can be requested from the school office.

What are the different types of membership?

  • Ex officio member: the Principal School Leader;
  • Parent member: elected by parents of registered pupils at the academy and must be a parent of a pupil at the academy at the time of the election (4-year term); the parent/carer may be appointed by GST if there are fewer nominations than vacancies.
