Our Governors

The Governors at St. Michael’s, together with the staff team, are responsible for ensuring that the school delivers the best educational and learning environment possible.

We bring experience from a variety of business, professional and community backgrounds with a majority of us either currently or previously having our children in the school. Our constituency also maintains part of the schools strong links with parents, community, church and parish.  We meet regularly to review progress, maintain financial stability and to consider longer term developments.

We introduce ourselves below and any one of us would welcome the opportunity to explain more about what we do as all governors are visible in the daily life of the school.
