National Governance Association (NGA)

The National Governance Association is the national membership organisation for state-funded school governors and trustees in England.

We aim to represent school governors and trustees from all state funded schools in England; including those from LA maintained schools and academies.We are an independent charity that aims to improve the educational standards and well-being of children and young people through supporting and promoting outstanding governance in all state-funded schools, including academies and free schools. The NGA is not aligned to any political party; we work closely with, and lobby, government and the major educational bodies to ensure that the views of governors and trustees are fully represented in the national arena.
