The Governing Body makes decisions for all four of the schools which, together, form the Loughborough Schools  Foundation (Fairfield, Loughborough Grammar School, Loughborough High School and Loughborough Amherst School). Regular meetings are held of both the whole Governing Body and of the sub committees and the High School, like the three other schools in the foundation, is represented by the head of the school. You can find out more information about our Governors here.
