Micklefield School (Reigate) Limited is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The trustees of the charity are the directors of the company as well as being governors of the school. Governors have responsibility for the overall strategic direction of the school. Day to day management of the school lies with the Headmistress who has overall responsibility for the school and the Bursar who takes responsibility for all non academic aspects.

The Governing Body works hard to support the aims and ethos of Micklefield School. Governors are chosen for their specialist skills and many have connections to the school and the local area. They all take an active interest in the life of the school and often visit during the school day.
