Our Governors

Our school governors meet frequently throughout the year. With the Headteacher, they take responsibility for finance, premises and curriculum.


Parents are welcome to attend as observers. Parent governors are often available in the school playground and will always be happy to talk to you. Once a year the governors hold an Annual Meeting to present their report to parents.


Our Governors Curriculum Aims are:

  • To promote highest possible achievement for all pupils irrespective of race, gender, culture or disability
  • To promote pupils' intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and physical development
  • To prepare pupils to become responsible citizens and lifelong learners in the twenty-first century


The Governors are also trustees of the Academy and are responsible for the Funding Agreement, Memorandum and Articles of Association relating to the Academy.

All these documents are on the website.


The Governing Body is currently chaired by Dennis Twomey. Our Vice Chair is David White, and our Parent Governor is Rana Basir. Our Local Authority Governor is Tony Millar, and our Community Governor is Martin Skelton. Our Teacher Governor is Tony Cummins.


The Governors will always be delighted to meet with you to share your comments and concerns.
