Mr Robert Knight – Chair of Governors

I only ever wanted to be a teacher and was privileged to spend 34 years working in schools. My experience was as an English teacher, subject leader and then senior leader in secondary schools; I spent 13 years as a Headteacher.  Since retiring from the classroom, I have worked as a leadership coach, mainly in primary schools and have also supported Governing Bodies in becoming more effective in their work.  I am passionate about the importance of education in giving all young people the very best start in life.  As a Governor at this exciting time in the school’s development, I will do all I can to ensure that everything it does helps all children to fulfil their potential.
