The School Governors

Governors have an interest in helping to ensure that children in the school receive the best possible education and the school governing body is a key partner in school leadership. The governors are a team made up from various representatives - parents, staff and the local community and who are responsible for:


  • Ensuring the School provides good quality education

  • The School’s budget and management of resources

  • Making sure the School provides for the individual needs of each child.

Mr Phil Riley

Hi, having been a governor at Nathaniel Newton previously I 'retired' when I no longer had children at the school but for some strange reason they recently asked if I wanted to return.

In the mean time 2 of my children are now at university and 2 are at the high school, they all went to this school and it provided them with a fantastic start to their education. It's a pleasure to be part of such a excellent school that has a great educational ethos and I hope that I can add to its growth in some small way again.
