A Voluntary Grammar School places increased responsibility for education on local communities and the governance is overseen by the Board of Governors. The Board is ultimately responsible for the management and performance of a Voluntary Grammar School for its pupils.

The Board is comprised of persons appointed in line with each school’s scheme of management (usually trustees or foundation governors) along with representatives of parents and teachers and, in most cases, members appointed by the Department of Education. A school Principal normally sits on the Board in an ex-officio capacity.
