Mrs Judith Jackson

Chair of Governors
Kingsmead School,

"I feel privileged to be leading the Governing Body at Kingsmead School. We are a group of volunteers drawn from the local community and between us have a wide range of skills and experience. Our aim is to support the Headteacher, the Senior Leadership Team and all the staff in providing a stimulating, safe and happy environment in which students can learn and develop the life skills that will take them into further education or the working world. Whilst we are justifiably proud of the academic achievements of our students, we are equally keen that they should engage with all the other opportunities and non-academic activities that Kingsmead offers, and we place particular emphasis on pastoral care. Our aim is that each and every student should leave Kingsmead equipped to be the best that they can be."
