Governance

The Olive School is part of Star Academies.

The Star Board of Members and Trustees oversees the whole organisation and is the legal Governing Body for all Star schools, but much of the work of the Board is delegated to the school Local Governing Body (see Star Scheme of Delegation).

We have a committed team of Governors who are actively involved in the life of the school. They reflect the community we serve and include parent and staff representatives.

Irfan Umarji is our Chair of Governors and can be contacted at the following address:

The Olive School, Bolton
Ashton House,
Waterloo Street,
Bolton
BL1 8HT

The Governors are passionate about The Olive School and are here to make sure that every young person is given the best education, opportunities and experiences possible. Our Governors play an important role in overseeing the work of the school, acting as “critical friends” for the Senior Leadership Team and holding the school to account for performance and development.

If you want to bring any matters to the attention of the Governing Body, you should address your correspondence to the Chair of Governors at the school address.
