Meet the Governors

The Governing Body at Ayscoughfee Hall School is chaired by Mr Neal and consists of the School’s Senior Management Team and the Governors listed below.

The composition of the School’s Governing Body reflects a range of groups from the community and enables the Governing Body to draw on a wide variety of skills and experiences.

Governors participate in all aspects of school life ensuring the school is being well led and managed, linking with subject coordinators and looking at all aspects of teaching and learning, interviewing and helping in the selection of staff, visiting and participating in school assemblies, events and visits. We are lucky to have such an experienced and committed Board of Governors.
