Message from the Chair of Governors


My involvement with Kingsweston School goes back several years and it has been my privilege to be Chair of Governors since 2013.

In all my time at the school I have been immensely impressed by what is achieved for and by our pupils. We have a skilled and hard-working staff who are dedicated to ensuring that all our students receive an education of the highest quality in a safe learning environment. Our aim is that each individual pupil leaves us, having succeeded to the best of their ability. As governors we have three core functions which support the school in this regard:

  • Setting the strategic direction of the school
  • Creating robust accountability systems and holding the school to account
  • Ensuring financial probity

Our most recent actions and their impact can be found in our Governor Impact Statement (at the bottom of this page). 

Elsewhere on this website you will learn about life at Kingsweston – the diversity of our community, the breadth of the curriculum, the enjoyment experienced by pupils and staff alike, and so much more.

Kingsweston School has many strengths and faces a wide range of exciting challenges. I have no doubt that the combined experience, skills and knowledge of its governing body, leadership team and staff will ensure that we are able to offer the very best for all members of the school community.
