The Governing Body Foundation is a service organisation founded in 1997 to propagate the best interests of sound governance in South African public schools.

At present the GBF represents some 700 public schools in all nine South African provinces, with its Head Office in Cape Town and regional offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth.

The organisation offers advice, guidance, information, training and general support on all aspects of school governance.

The GBF has established the necessary resources and infrastructure, and possesses the legal and general expertise, knowledge and experience, to service its members’ needs efficiently. Our facilities can be of value to all public schools which find themselves faced with similar governance challenges.
