Governance

Proprietor’s Board

The Proprietor's Board (PB)  has a particular responsibility to preserve and safeguard the special character of the school, as well as acting as agent for the owner of the land and buildings which constitute the school. The special character is terminology that is embedded in our integration agreement with the Government. The meaning is very specific and includes Christian worship and the doctrine of the Anglican Church, the boarding establishment, maintaining tradition, and development of the whole person with special emphasis on music, arts, outdoor education and Christian values.
