Board seeks new member

Montessori Academy of London, a not-for-profit school and registered charity, has an opening for a community member to join its Board of Governors. Established in 1968, Montessori Academy is one of London’s oldest independent school, and became a registered charity in 2010.

While all applications will be considered, priority will be given to a candidate who is experienced in financial matters and has the ability to read financial statements, connect the financial dots and challenge our executive team on financial and strategic planning. The following attributes will be considered an asset:

  • business or finance degree/diploma from a post-secondary institution
  • 3+ years of work experience in business and/or accounting
  • accounting and finance experience, including financial analysis, budgeting, internal controls, audit and financial reporting
  • CPA, CBV, CFA or other financial designation.

About the Board of Governors

The Governance of the Academy is the responsibility of a volunteer board consisting of a committed group of alumni, alumni parents, current parents, community members and ex-officio school officers with a passion for education and the growth and development of children. To learn more about our current Board members, visit the school’s website:

The Board assumes strategic and fiscal responsibility for the Academy, meeting regularly throughout the school year and having responsibility for several board-mandated committees.  The Board of Governors provides strategic and financial oversight and direction to support the legacy of Montessori Academy of London and ensure that strong Montessori education is available in London for years to come. 

Governor Role and Responsibilities

  • Attend Board meetings which are held approximately 9 times per year
  • Sit on at least one of the board’s standing committees who meet monthly
  • Provide support to the Executive Director in areas involving their subject-matter expertise


Familiarity with not-for-profit sector and previous not-for-profit board experience is an asset, but not a requirement.
