Governors Cymru Services draws on a wealth of experience and expertise to offer friendly, independent and accurate advice and guidance. The response time from Sam and Jane to our queries is second to none, the service is bilingual and the evening availability suits our busy governors. Website resources are constantly updated with best practice and case study examples to offer a comprehensive resource service, which can be accessed by all governors at the school. In short, the support agreement offers excellent value for money and I would recommend Governors Cymru Services to any governing body in Wales.
