This academic year sees the Platinum Jubilee and as such an additional bank holiday has been announced on 3rd June which falls in the half term holiday.

Local authorities across the country have taken the decision to allow all schools to celebrate this on a different date.

Surrey Local Authority have decided that schools will take this holiday on Friday 22nd October 2021, as such Grafham Grange will also be closed on that day.



Welcome from the Chair

Thank you for your interest in the role of the Local Governing Body.

All governors are volunteers, and we bring our skills and experience from a wide range of professional and personal backgrounds to work alongside the leadership team and help achieve the very best for our pupils. Our role as governors is to help set strategic direction, to hold school leaders to account for the education, safety and well being of pupils and to ensure money is well spent on the continuous improvement of our school. We meet once a term.

Part of our role as governors is to monitor the performance of the school, and we very much welcome feedback on all aspects of school life from pupils, their families as well as local authorities and the local communities. We are often at school events and value the opportunity to hear directly from pupils and families. If you wish to contact the LGB, please email the clerk at

Julian Short, Chair of the Local Governing Body
