Phil Palmer

I joined the Governing Body in 2008 as a parent governor and live a short walk away from school.

I have a particular interest in ‘transitions’ and it is my belief that as our young people become adults that the school should be preparing all of them for employment and life in the real world.

The pathways such as Bridging the Gap, Hortus, Lumenus and the IT and Sports Pathways are examples of how this outstanding school does make a difference in our young people’s lives.

Within the Governing Body I also chair the Audit Committee which regularly scrutinises the financial and other processes within the school.
