Queen Mary's Grammar School Governing Body 2017-18

The school is part of the Mercian Trust, a multi-academy trust, which was incorporated on 1 January 2018. Prior to that date the school had a full governing body and the details of the Local Governing Board below were the relevant Governors until the 31 December 2017, unless appointed subsequently.

Following the formation of the Mercian Trust, the governing body converted to a Local Governing Board, which is legally a committee of the Mercian Trust Board. The details below are of the Members of the Mercian Trust, the details of the Mercian Trustees and of the Local Governing Board. The attendances are for the last academic year, and the details of the resignations are those that occurred in the last 12 months. The Local Governing Board has no additional committees except for Admissions, Staffing, Pupil Discipline, Pay, Head’s review and Complaints, and these are convened when required.
