Governance

Welcome to Marine Academy Plymouth on behalf of the Governing Body.

The Board is responsible for the Academy’s vision and long term strategic direction, for the financial sustainability of the Academy and for the performance of the Principal and his Senior Team. Together we have collective responsibility for the Academy's governance arrangements and our aim is to ensure that governance is both robust and absolutely fitting for the ambitions of the Academy and the community that we serve. The Board is tasked with helping to ensuring year on year improvement’s in the Academy’s performance and we do this by providing support, advice, expertise and challenge.

Our Governors are drawn from a number of different walks of life and have a diverse mix of skills and experience.
