There are many ways that we continue to support the school and one is that we appoint Foundation Governors to the school. Currently there are two vacancies for governors. If you, or someone you know, are interested in serving in this way or just finding out more, please do speak to myself, Roger Tiffen of Yelena Wells if you would like more information.
