Influencing the Future of Education


SGOSS is a highly innovative and dynamic charity whose purpose is to support schools in the sourcing and appointment of School Governors and Academy Trustees. Within the UK Education sector, the roles of the Governor and Trustee on school boards are having an increasing impact upon the overall success of schools. Coupled with this is the anticipated growth in demand of Governors and Trustees to meet current targets set by the government. SGOSS has built strong relationships with Corporate Partners (KPMG, Aviva, Allen and Overy) in order to develop the Governor and Trustee candidate pool across the country for schools to have access to a broad and diverse Governor Group.

While SGOSS is currently the largest provider of Governors and Trustees to schools, it is seeking to further expand that remit considerably. The Charity is entering a new phase of growth and is seeking a CEO who can build a strong platform for further development whilst embodying the passion and vision of the Charity.
