A shortfall in school governors has sparked a recruitment drive by the council.
There are currently 1126 governor posts in the borough’s schools, and 119 (10.6 per cent) are currently vacant.
Hounslow Council is now calling on people who can spare a few hours a week to help shape a school's future to come forward.
Cllr Paul Lynch, lead member for education and children at the London Borough of Hounslow, said: "Being a school governor is very rewarding. It is an effective way of making a contribution your local community and the success of your local schools.
"Governors come from a wide range of backgrounds, and have a wide range of experience. The more diverse the governors’ background, the better for the school.
"Younger people are under-represented, which is a great shame, since it is a chance to hone skills that are so useful to someone building a career.
