Parent Liaison Body
Camps Bay High School is governed by the School Governing Body (SGB). This is an elected group of parents, senior learners, academic staff, support staff and the principal. The parents are at all times in the majority on the SGB. This body deals with strategic planning for the School, infrastructure development and financial management. Some of their specific functions include, determining the annual school fees, the school Code of Conduct and the school uniform and general dress code.

Other interested parties who hold the best interests of the school at heart can be co-opted onto the SGB as and when needed;
