"Welcome to the governor pages - here you’ll find potted biographies of members of the governing body together with notes from governors following their visits to school.  As governors we’re charged with setting the strategic direction of the school and with holding Mr Gibbons accountable for the performance of the school.  In a nutshell these are our rather formal (and entirely necessary) statutory obligations; on a rather less formal note we’re all committed, together with all of our staff, to ensuring that the school continues to provide fantastically rich and diverse educational experiences for all our children.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any comments or queries relating to these pages or any aspect of the governance of our school.”
