Congratulations to Tracy Critchley

Congratulations to Tracy Critchley who has joined the Governing Body as a Parent-Governor.

When I recently had a meeting at the DfE West Midlands Regional Schools Commissioner’s offices, they were very impressed with the make up, calibre and educational experience of our governing body. Their job is to represent staff, parents, students and the trust and hold me and my staff to account, ensuring that every decision made has a positive impact on the students.
