Welcome to our Governors' section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor. A Register of Governor Business Interests is also published below. 


Mr Martin Simpson is our Chair of Governors. He can be contacted through the school office. 



We currently have a vacancy on our board for a Local Authority governor.  The title of this governor role can be slightly misleading: it does not mean that the person filling the role should work for the Local Authority.  The title is slightly historical and comes from a time when a Local Authority governor was appointed by the local councillor.  The role can be filled by any person who has an interest in becoming a governor and ideally they will bring a fresh perspective to the work of the Governing Body.  If you are interested in joining the Governing Body of our school, please contact the Chair of Governors via the school office and we will be able to provide more information about the role.
