Outstanding Governance Awards

Wednesday, 22 May 2019

A huge congratulations today to our Federation’s Board of Governors who last night were announced winners of the prestigious National Governance Association’s Outstanding Governance Awards in the category of “Outstanding Vision and Strategy”.

This accolade is a well-deserved recognition of their tireless work on behalf of Cherry Oak School, Victoria School and Victoria College.

The Federation Board came into being through a demonstration of vision and strategy in bringing Victoria and Cherry Oak Schools together to form the Federation, then the vision and strategy was extended to the creation of Victoria College. This is the example that was cited in the nomination. The Board had the foresight to anticipate the need for a quality post-school provision, then established a strategy to bring the College into being. Over the 6 years since its inauguration, the Governors have continued to worked tirelessly to ensure the future of the College by bringing it to its current status as an Independent Specialist Post 16 Institution (SPI).

Thank you to all Board members for your hard work, vision, energy and commitment to our Federation and congratulations on this national award.
