College Corporation

The Corporation is the governing body of Wyke Sixth Form College. It oversees the way that the College is run and aims to ensure that the College delivers what its community needs and makes effective use of the resources it has available. It represents the interest of the local community in particular and the public interest in general.

Corporation members are unpaid volunteers. The Corporation seeks, through its membership, to be accountable to all its stakeholders: students, parents, staff and the local community. Student and staff members are elected to Corporation by students and staff, respectively, and other Corporation members are appointed by Corporation on the advice of its Search and Governance Committee. Under its governing documents, the Corporation is responsible, in particular, for obtaining the views of staff and students on the educational character and mission of the College and the oversight of its activities. Including staff and students on the Corporation is one of the ways in which the Corporation does this. There is currently one vacancy for a Parent Corporation member and two vacancies in the ordinary Corporation member category, with a third vacancy in this category arising from 1 Jan. 2021.  If you are interested in any of these vacancies, please contact the Clerk to the Corporation. An election is currently being held for a Teaching Staff member.

FAQs

Can anyone attend Corporation meetings?

Under section 16 of the Instrument of Government, it is for the Corporation to decide whether a person who is not a Corporation member, the Principal or the Clerk to the Corporation may attend a full Corporation meeting. If a member of the public is permitted to attend a full Corporation meeting, they will not be permitted to remain in attendance during items which are considered by the Corporation to be confidential. Members of the public who wish to attend a full Corporation meeting should contact the Clerk to the Corporation, giving at least 24 hours notice. Corporation committee meetings are not open to the public.

Can anyone see Corporation papers?

Some of the business conducted by Corporation is confidential and not available to general access but the bulk is open to public scrutiny. Members of the public who wish to see the register of members’ interests, Corporation Code of Conduct, or the agendas, minutes not already on the website, or any other papers connected with meetings of the Corporation or of its committees, should contact the Clerk to the Corporation.
