Governor Opportunities

City Academy Norwich is an aspirational Academy, passionate about providing a holistic education to all students.  We are looking to grow our board of Governors and would welcome applications to join the governing body at this exciting time of school improvement.

Becoming a Governor of City Academy Norwich is a fantastic way to give something back to the school community – its students, staff, parents and the wider community. Governors have a significant role in the long-term development and improvement of the school and provide strong links with the wider community.

Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the children in our school.

They provide support for the Headteacher, teaching and support staff. You would be expected to attend regular meetings and contribute to the behind-the-scenes decision-making and planning at City Academy Norwich.

If you are interested in becoming a Governor at City Academy Norwich, please contact for further information or to arrange a meeting with the Headteacher.

An application form for this voluntary position can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
