The school has been set up as a not-for-profit charity ensuring that it is stable and that all income is fed back into the school to be used to provide a better learning experience for our children.
Since the school is a charitable company for the purpose of educating children, shares in the school cannot be sold to private companies or individuals.
The trustees of the new charity that runs the school are responsible for the financial and legal governance of the school:
representing the interests of the community consisting of parents and students
setting the vision for the school’s overall direction and ethos
employing a headteacher who is enthusiastically aligned with our vision of the school
setting the boundaries for the budget, and submitting financial accounts
overseeing that funds have been spent in the best interests of the students
approving any bursaries championed by the head and registrar (within the charitable donations)
ensuring that charity law requirements are met
The trustees and the head collaborate to ensure that the academic and pastoral vision for the school is realised. The head leads the community of teachers and staff delivering the best education for our children, operating within the budgetary framework set by the charitable company.
Landmark does not select students based on entrance exams. A simple interview ensures that the student fits in with the ethos of the school, and that we can meet the needs of the student.
Mary Greer is the Registrar, responsible for national and international applications to the school. She has many years of experience in assisting local and international students and their families through the admissions process and in the process of relocation, including tier 4 visas.
