Welcome to the website of GovernSandwell

GovernSandwell (formerly ASGB) is an independent association, supported by school subscription and not affiliated to any political party. We hope that the following pages will help you to understand our history, structure, ethos and how we support governors in over eighty schools of every status in Sandwell.

Our calendar of events lists our meeting dates to which all GovernSandwell members are invited and are most welcome to attend. Details of all previous meetings and presentations are included for information.

We believe that as governors, we can all learn from each other and encourage you to share any good practice with your colleagues via our contact page. We also recognise the need for new governors and chairs/vice-chairs to have their own platform and have a separate page for each.

Your feedback is welcomed, together with any suggestions for future agendas and most importantly, your ideas on how we can continue to support you in your very challenging role as a governor.

GovernSandwell also has Facebook, Twitter and Youtube accounts.
