Clerk to Governors: Mrs Belinda Brown

  • Scott Matthewson’s profession requires him to travel widely in the UK and be away from home for protracted periods. Consequently, it is difficult for him to attend most governors’ meetings; however, he is always available for consultation and discussion by email and telephone and visits the school regularly when he does not have work commitments. He is a valuable member of the team and, in line with all the other members of the Governing Body, fulfils his responsibilities with dedication and distinction.

 

Reconstituted under The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 on 1 September 2015
