Staff Vacancies

School Trustee

We are looking for 4 new trustees to join the Board at Hollygirt School in the following areas:

  • Education
  • Finance (Chair of the committee)
  • HR
  • Health and Safety

Hollygirt School Trustees serve in a threefold capacity as:

  • Trustees of the charity
  • Directors of the company
  • Governors of the school

They usually serve for a period of up to 5 years.

Board members are usually involved in one or more committees and take on some key responsibilities. All attend full board meetings.

There is usually one full board meeting and one of each committee meeting each term. Additionally we put on a full training/strategy day on a Saturday in in the Summer Term.

Currently there are four committees: Finance and General Purposes (F+GP); Education (Curriculum and Pupils); HR and Marketing and Admissions.

Trustees are welcome into school at any time to peruse files, visit classes, meet the staff or management or for any other purpose. Attendance is expected at the school’s annual Prize Giving (October) and Carol Service (December).

Additional attendance is welcome, though not essential, at Open Days, concerts and shows, sports days, the end of Summer Term Staff Lunch and other school events.

There are currently eleven members of the board.

Further information about Board Committees & Trustee Representatives can be viewed at: https://www.hollygirt.co.uk/board-of-trustees/

All trustees are subject to a full DBS check and other recruitment checks.

Each trustee should understand and support the ethos of our small independent school.

**Unfortunately we cannot accept applications from parents with children currently at Hollygirt School as we have our full parent quota already on the Board.**


Trustees serve in a voluntary capacity.

Application Details 

Fully completed applications should be sent to Mrs L Hudson (Clerk to the Trustees and Bursar) on LauraHudson@hollygirt.notts.sch.uk for forwarding to Dr Debra Costley (Chair of Trustees).
