Job description

Governor of the Corporation

Do you have a passion for Sixth Form Education and helping young people in the area?

If so, we are looking for some new faces to join our experienced Corporation Members. This is an exciting voluntary opportunity for the residents of Eastleigh, Southampton and surrounding areas to become a member of the Corporation or a co-opted member of one of the Corporation’s Committees. No experience is necessary but a genuine interest in contributing to the betterment of the local community and enabling young people to fulfil their potential is essential.


Be a part of the Barton Peveril College journey

The College

Our mission is to make Barton Peveril a strong community in which each individual is committed to the highest standards of effort, achievement and ambition.

OFSTED has judged Barton Peveril to be Outstanding across all four key judgements: quality of education, behaviour and attitudes, personal development, and leadership and management.

You will be joining a college that achieves excellent student outcomes and is focused on continually exploring and reviewing the most effective teaching and learning strategies. We enjoy a long established reputation for looking after our students and taking an interest in young people as we prepare them for a successful future through a broad education.

We are committed to investing in the continuous professional development and training of our staff and governors, and to their wellbeing. We know that, to a very large extent, it is because of the remarkable talent and dedication of our staff, that Barton Peveril is now one of the largest and most successful sixth form colleges in the country.

How to apply

If you are interested in joining us we would love to hear from you. To apply, please go to to send in a brief CV along with a letter of interest, no more than 250 words in length. Your letter should state why you think you would be sui for the role, any relevant experience and whether you have a specialism or particular interest. There is no set deadline for applications and the process is administered by volunteers and we may therefore take up to 10 working days to get back to you. All applicants will be invited to visit and meet with our Chair of Governors, Principal, Clerk and an existing Governors as part of the recruitment process which may also involve a group exercise. No advance preparation will be required. ​​

​You are very welcome to email the Clerk for further information or to arrange to have an informal chat about what is involved ([email protected]). Interviews are not expected to be formal and are as much an opportunity for you to find out about us as for us to find out about you. You will have a chance to talk to an existing Governor, a member of the Senior Leadership Team and have a look around the College.
