The Claremont College School Council is comprised of volunteers who are appointed by the Anglican Schools Corporation. In practice the Council works to understand the educational environment, setting the strategic direction, guiding leadership appointments, and overseeing the management and operation of the school from a governance perspective. Meetings are generally held monthly. The Council appoints the Principal and delegates to the Principal the leadership and management of the School. The Principal is accountable to the Council.
