Scholars International Academy




To support SIA’s development towards its vision and mission.


We envisage growing a learning ‘eco system’ that supports learners to become resilient, feel empowered and be courageous aspirational global citizens who are life ready.


As a High-Performance Learning school, we aim to instil an evidence-based set of advanced characteristics alongside the values, attitudes, and attributes. We recognise the importance to equip our learners to be intellectually and socially confident young people who capitalise on life’s opportunities.

The Governance committee at SIA serves as an opportunity to support SIA to develop as a custodian for the SIA Community. The Committee regularly meets as an important partnership and forms part of the process of holding the leadership accountable for the performance of the school.

There is a responsibility of the governance to be part of the monitoring and positively influence the school’s development in accordance with the agreed purpose and strategy.

Ultimately, the governance committee should provide constructive feedback to the SLT of the school.
