About

Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Penair School is an Academy Trust and has a board of trustees known as the Governing Body.

The governors of the school are required by the national government to focus upon three strategic issues;

  • the ethos and strategic direction of the school
  • the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • the financial performance of the school

All governors are drawn from the local community and most of us either have, or have had, children at the school. We are all very proud to play our part in supporting the school and our students.

We want every student to feel safe, to enjoy their time at Penair and to achieve to the very best of their ability in both academic and personal terms.To this end we will do our utmost to ensure that all students receive the very best teaching and support possible.

I believe that Penair School offers an outstanding environment in which all students can thrive; I have every confidence that your own experience will bear out this conviction!

Mr David Matthew
Chair of the Governors
