Governance

We are proud of our team of dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to support us in achieving our goals.  The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust as sponsor, is responsible for a number of schools and colleges, including De Salis Studio College.  As part of its remit, the Trust continues to drive up standards, being fully committed to the further development of its provision for its stakeholders. The De Salis Studio College Local Advisory (Governing) Body (LAB) is therefore required to meet formally each term before reporting to the Academy Board as part of Governance Day, involving the Members and Directors. 

The LAB consists of community (co-opted) members, parents, guardians, carers and staff.  The skills sets, expertise and commitment of each individual are fundamental, as the LAB is critical to the work of De Salis Studio College and overall governance arrangements of the Trust. Accordingly, the De Salis Studio College LAB is made up as follows:
