What is a Grant Maintained School?

Grant Maintained Integrated (GMI) schools are managed by Boards of Governors, which consist of persons appointed in line with each school’s scheme of management (usually trustees or foundation governors) along with representatives of parents, teachers and, members appointed by the Department.

The Board of Governors of a GMI school is the employing authority, and, as such, is responsible for the employment of all staff (both teaching and non-teaching) in its school.
