Derby Governors Partnership

Derby and Derbyshire Governance Partnership (DGP) is part of the Derby Teaching School Alliance (DTSA). It is a broad and inclusive local partnership providing impartial support to school governors and clerks to governing bodies from all school phases working closely with the National Governance Association (NGA).


  • We aim to build encouragement and support through focused and effective collaborative practice between governors and clerks that improves school governance and learning outcomes for all.
  • We will achieve this through fostering motivation and engagement in continuous improvement of school governance to achieve the very best teaching and learning.
  • We recognise that good and outstanding practice can be found in many places and contexts.
  • We believe that every school should have outstanding governance.
