Who are they?
A Governor creates an enjoyable and stimulating environment for your child to gain confidence in their own abilities through play and structured lessons. There is also a real focus on etiquette, manners, discipline and culture.
Governors are educated with a university education and additional qualifications in other areas. Governors enjoy both aspects of childcare and tutoring. Families often hire governors for their son(s) so that they have somebody to connect with as a buddy/mentor and engage in academic, sporting, artistic and musical activities with somebody they feel comfortable with and whom they can learn English as a second language from.
