Urmston Grammar is a registered company.

The Governing Body of Urmston Grammar has been led for 12 years now by our Chairman, Mr. Eric May. On conversion to Academy, the Chairmen of the committees and the Chairman of the Governors were were voted in as Directors of "Urmston Grammar"

We also have a fully committed team of Governors who have both led and supported the school in an exceptionally positive and constructive way for many years now. Governance has always placed the children above politics and personal persuasion and supported the school above all else. Governance was rated "Outstanding" by OfSTED.

Urmston Grammar  is very fortunate indeed to have such a committed and dedicated body of volunteers to serve our community. All Governors and Directors at Urmston Grammar act on an unpaid basis.
