Full membership of the Association consists of all members of the governing bodies, academy trust boards and advisory boards of all the state schools in Oxfordshire. All members have equal status, there is no differentiation as a result either of the type of governor or board member or of the type of school from which the member comes. Membership is entirely free to individual governors / board members. However, we do charge schools a nominal membership fee which has been unchanged since 2003.
For schools with up to 300 pupils our membership fee is £10 per school and for schools with 301 or more pupils we charge £15 per school. However, we do charge individually for each school regardless of their status as a freestanding school or a school within a multi academy trust or federation.
