Exeter House seeks new governors

Exeter House Special School in Salisbury is looking for new governors.

The school currently caters for approximately 177 young people between the ages of 4 and 19 who have Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD), Severe Learning Disabilities (SLD) or Complex Needs.

A significant number of students also have a diagnosis of autism.

The school is looking for highly motivated, positive individuals to take on what is an important role, someone who wants to be part of the ongoing development and evolution at Exeter House.

Exeter House has a special place in the Salisbury community. Its spacious site on Somerset Road includes a hydrotherapy pool, jacuzzi, sensory room, soft play spaces, library, vocational kitchen and Forest School.

Exeter House governors support, question and scrutinise how things are done. They are a friendly and committed team, working with the senior leaders at school, to ensure there is a clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

They hold executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils – as well as the performance management of staff. Governors also oversee the financial performance of the school – making sure money is well spent.

Volunteering as a Governor at Exeter House provides an excellent opportunity to broaden your horizons and be a part of your local community.

Exeter House is part of the Somerset Road Education Trust: a unique collaborative multi-academy trust, formed in partnership with St Mark’s CofE Junior School and Wyndham Park Infants’ School who share its campus.

The school also has an offsite vocational centre for our older students and a Resource Base at each of our partner schools.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.

Please contact the Governance Clerk at to arrange this and for further information.
