Welcome from the Chair of Governors
As Chair of Governors I am delighted to be leading our Governing Body to work together with the school to provide outstanding education for our students. Queen’s Park High School is continuously working to improve education for all students, giving them access to the opportunities they deserve. As part of the Christleton Learning Trust our school continues to develop and grow to support all students and their learning journey.
As the Chair of Governors I am focused on giving the Governing Body a clear lead and direction, ensuring that the governors work as an effective team and understand their accountability and the part they play in the strategic leadership of the school and in driving school improvement. I am very passionate about the team we have leading the school, and indeed the dedication, expertise and heart they put into their every day.
Governors are appointed to ensure that objectives are met and that planning for the future is both visionary and realistic. We are here to support and encourage the Headteacher and all school personnel so that students have access to an enriched education.
I am available to parents for any matter relating to the school, once you have discussed it with the Head teacher, and I am sure any one of the Governors would be happy to provide any information you may need or to discuss any issues you may have. Parents and Governors have key roles in helping Queen’s Park High School achieve high standards for all our children both now, and for future generations.
We are proud of the whole school community, and the way we work together. Thank you for your interest and support.
