Isleworth & Syon School has a long and distinguished history, dating back to 1630, and over time it has been through several different designations. In 2012, the school converted to an Academy, retaining its long-established status as being independent of local authority control.

The Governors of the school have legal responsibilities as set out in the Funding Agreement and in our Memorandum & Articles of Association. Members of the Governing Body are comprised of Foundation Governors (nominated by The British & Foreign School Society [BFSS], Brunel University and The Senate of the University of London); elected Parent/Carer Governors; Community Governors; Co-Opted Governors and Staff Governors.

The Governing Body meets formally once per term and committees also meet on a termly basis. The duties are varied and include setting an annual budget, ensuring that statutory policies are in place, and providing support and challenge for the school’s Senior Leadership Team.

The governors of Isleworth & Syon are responsible for the overall decisions made with regards to the school.

Academy Trusts are independent charitable companies and are required to produce an annual report and financial statement at the end of every academic year, this being the same as our financial year. These accounts are audited by independent auditors and once approved, are submitted to the Education and Skills Finding Agency (ESFA) usually by the December following the latest academic year. They are also filed with Companies House.

Our latest accounts, along with the accounts for the previous two financial years, will always be available on the school website. This webpage will normally be updated by the January following the latest financial year.
