Become an LDST Governor


Local Governing Bodies are the “eyes and ears” of the Trust as they feedback information and provide assurance to the Board, that:

  • The vision for the school is in line with the overall vision of LDST.
  • Each school is well led and managed.
  • All Trust Policies are being implemented.
  • Safeguarding and Health and Safety are managed effectively.
  • Quality of Education is good.
  • Christian Distinctiveness of schools is being upheld.

Local Governing Bodies are a crucial element of LDST's governance structure. LDST empowers local leaders to lead local schools in the best interests of local communities. This means that the Board of Directors delegates distinct responsibilities to each local governing body to ensure that our local schools provide an excellent education that enables all learners to flourish.


If you are over 18, passionate about education and about helping young people achieve their potential, why not consider becoming a Governor in a LDST school? We are always on the lookout for people who share the purpose, vision and core values of our Trust and who can bring experience and leadership to support and challenge our schools.  We offer training and support to help Governors fulfil their roles successfully and our Governors’ network helps all our Governors to learn from each other and to share experiences and ideas.


If you are interested in becoming a Governor at one of our schools, please contact Hollie Stott (


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and Governors to share this commitment. Before your appointment as a Governor is confirmed, you will be required to undertake suitability checks, including an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) application.
