Welcome to the Local Governing Board of Callington Community College.

Within this part of the website, you can learn more about our governors and the range of skills and experiences they bring with them to their roles and the board as a whole.

I know I can speak for the whole board when I say how incredibly proud we are to be Governors here at Callington Community College. It is vital that Callington Community College continues to benefit from a vibrant Local Governing Board that has oversight of student life at the College and seeks to ensure the very best outcomes for our young people.

We are delighted that Callington Community College is a member of the Westcountry Schools Trust ( This places us within a ‘family’ of schools including Coombe Dean School, Dunstone Primary School, Hele's School, Holbeton Primary School, Oreston Community Academy, Woodlands Park Primary School, Stowford School, Plymstock School, Wembury Primary School, Yealmpton Primary School, Ivybridge Community College, and the recently opened Sherford Vale School.

We are always keen to hear from anyone interested in becoming a Governor. It is a hugely rewarding experience and we are always delighted to have informal conversations to explore whether this is something that could be of mutual benefit.

You are welcome to contact us via this form and selecting Chair of Governors from the drop down list.

We have vacancies on the Local Governing Board

If you are skilled in finance, audit or data analysis you would be particularly welcome. Don’t worry if this doesn’t sound like you! If you have other credentials, and importantly if you have time to dedicate to the role (ideally a few hours per week) and if the prospect of working with a dynamic and committed local group ‘on the ground’ appeals to you, please contact me via the College reception, or via the Contact Page on this website .

Thank you!
