Governors

The Governing Body are group of people who make important decisions about the running of the school. This can include anything from decisions about employing new staff to how to spend the school's budget. Their role is to hold the Principal to account and to ensure that the school is well run and successful. Governors come from all walks of life and share a commitment to the children at the Academy.

If you would like to contact our Acting Chair of Governors please send a letter to the school and we will ensure it is passed on:
