Members & Governors


Our Governing Body would like to welcome you to our academy.


The governors regularly make visits to the school and would like to hear your thoughts and opinions.  If you have any suggestions on how we can make our school the best it can be, please leave your comments in the suggestions box located in the school’s main entrance.
