Who's Who

Governors

The school governing body consists of 8 members and since we became an academy, some of its duties have been taken over by the Flying High Trust Board of Directors. (For full details see The Flying High Trust link on our homepage)

The governing body meets once per term and is responsible for ensuring the Academy fulfils its statutory obligations and that the pupils at the school are receiving a high quality education.
