"This term is a very exciting time for Kingsmead with the opening of the new school building and the appointment of a new Head Teacher. This means that the Governing Body will have more to do than usual in both appointing a new Head Teacher and making decision about the strategic direction of the school. For this reason, we will be joint co-chairs for the autumn term with Nick concentrating on the appointment and induction of the new Head Teacher and Judith on the everyday workings of the school and supporting Mr Williams in what we plan to be a smooth handover in January. In this we will be supported by the whole Governing Body who are a group of volunteers with a wide range of skills and experience drawn from the local community.

As a Governing Body we will continue to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for our students in which they can thrive both academically and emotionally, with many opportunities for non- academic activities. Our emphasis on pastoral care remains and it is our overriding ambition that each student should leave Kingsmead having achieved their best and equipped for whatever the future holds for them. "
