 Information about our governing body

The chair and vice-chair of governors have significant experience in governance, local authority and school leadership. They have a strong skills set, promote the academy well and are ambitious and realistic in their vision for improvement. All governors are well informed of the academy developments, are actively involved in all aspects of academy life and monitor its effectiveness regularly.
