Welcome to the Governance page of the academy website. 

We are proud that from the 1stJuly, we became an academy sponsored by the Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust:

The new Chair of the Local Governing Body is Mr Mick Pye can be contacted via the academy office.  

The Local Governing Body’s vision for the academy is clear – to make sure that each and every child reaches their full potential and that they are inspired to become learners for life.

The membership of the Local Governing Body will eventually include; parents and staff to add to the foundation Local Governors who have already been appointed on the basis of their skills.

Each individual gives freely of their time to perform three key roles for the academy :

  • To provide strategic leadership

  • To ensure accountability

  • To act as a critical friend to the Principal and senior leadership team

The nominated Safeguarding Governor is Louise Rogerson.

Chair of Governors,

Mr Mick Pye
