There are four different categories of Governor at Withernsea High School:

Co-opted: Co-opted Governors are appointed by the governing body. They are people, who in the opinion of the governing body, have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

Local Authority: Local Authority Governors are nominated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council but appointed by the governing body.

Staff: Both teaching and support staff are eligible to be Staff Governors. Their role will not be to represent staff but to operate as part of the governing body to provide strategic leadership and to hold the Headteacher to account.

Parent: Parent Governors are elected by other parents/carers of students at the school. Any parent, which includes a person with parental responsibility, or carer, of a registered pupil at the school at the time of election is eligible to stand. When vacancies arise, the Headteacher will write to parents/carers to seek nominations.
