Welcome from the Chair of Governors

As Chair of Governors I am pleased 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 and the Good rating from our OFSTED inspection in early 2020 demonstrates that commitment to improvement .  As part of The Learning Trust our school continues to develop and grow to support all students and their learning journey.

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 . 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.

Yours sincerely,

Ben McGrath

Chair of Governors

Members of the  governing body

Co-opted Governors are elected by the current QPHS governors
Staff Governors are elected by QPHS staff

Trustees are elected by members of The Learning Trust

  • The Headteacher can choose whether or not to be a Governor at their school

  • Staff Governors are either teachers or support staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues
  • Co-opted Governors are appointed by other Governors as representatives of the wider local community, as business representatives, or because of particular skills they can bring to the Governing Body

The term of office of a Governor is four years, but there is nothing to stop Governors resigning within the four years.
