  • Scott Matthewson’s profession requires him to travel widely in the UK and be away from home for protracted periods. Consequently, it is difficult for him to attend most governors’ meetings; however, he is always available for consultation and discussion by email and telephone and visits the school regularly when he does not have work commitments. He is a valuable member of the team and, in line with all the other members of the Governing Body, fulfils his responsibilities with dedication and distinction.

Clerk to Governors:
