Your Clerk

Qualified. Independent. Professional.

Governance Support for Schools & Academies

Professional, reliable and confidential

Your Clerk provides independent governance support to schools and multi-academy trusts across the UK's south coast.

What can Your Clerk do for you?

We have a range of service packages to suit your individual needs, to best support governance arrangements for your school and trust.

Public Record Management

Governance is subject to public scrutiny.  The public record is the key document that any external agency will want sight of.  We can maintain the public record for your governance arrangement, to ensure it is up to date and ready for external scrutiny and challenge.

Advice & Guidance

Whatever contract package you choose, we will support your governance arrangement in and out of the meetings.  If we feel the need to intervene in a meeting to provide the necessary guidance to ensure compliance, we will.  If the Chair needs support in-meeting, we're there.

Meeting Attendance

We have a 100% attendance record.  All meetings are scheduled in advance, in liaison with our clients; however, we do expect our clients to understand that a degree of flexibility and cooperation is required in order for us to meet everyone's needs. If you are looking to progress how your governance model operates, why not consider taking your package online, for a 10% discount.

Virtual Governance

Now, more than ever, we are reliant on alternatives to the traditional meeting environment.  We've been supporting volunteers for over a decade and understand the need to embrace new technologies that enable efficient and effective  governance outside of the board room. 


In partnership with Sigma Teaching School, we offer training on the Department for Education's Competency Framework for Governance as well as hosting network events for Clerks to Governors.  Find out more...

Independent & Qualified

Accredited by the National College of Teaching & Learning, Your Clerk is appointed by the Governing Body or Board of Directors; we are not employed by the school or Trust, which offers you highly skilled and valuable, nonpartisan input and support for your governance team.
