Our governors play a key role in our continued improvements, and bring a range of skills and expertise to our academy.

I believe strongly that all children can benefit from an excellent education particularly those from challenging backgrounds.

I believe strongly that all children can benefit from an excellent education particularly those from challenging backgrounds and I am committed to helping to achieve this. Identifying and supporting individual student needs and well-being will allow them to achieve their full potential. Ensuring they are provided with the foundation blocks for their futures as adults will give them the best chance of achieving social mobility.

I have been a governor at a post-16 college for 3 years and actively sought an opportunity to work with key stage 1.

I have lived in Halifax all my life. I have 4 grown up children and 6 grandchildren. I grew up in what is considered a deprived area of Calderdale to disabled elderly parents. I have previously worked in special educational needs but have spent the last 20 years in the social housing sector. I often see many of our former students becoming my future customers.

I see my role as a school governor at Trinity Academy Akroydon to be a combination of challenge and support to the leadership team of the school with the ultimate aim of driving up standards (and keeping them there).

Working in school has allowed me to recognise how important it is that the children leave equipped with the knowledge, skills and moral foundations to enable them to achieve and succeed in later life. I hope to utilise my skills and experience gained over many years, to work with the school, the governing body and the staff to positively influence the educational experience of the lovely children who attend our academy.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family, I love the outdoors and spend many hours walking and developing my (limited) skills in gardening.

Robert McGinty

I firmly believe that enrichment is important in the shaping of our young people.

I am very privileged to serve as a Governor at Trinity Academy Akroydon and am excited about working with the school.

I have worked in education for over 15 years, with the last five years being as a Senior Leader in two local secondary schools. I have also previously been a Governor in another local primary academy. In terms of school improvement, I have particular interests in curriculum design and quality assurance systems in ensuring overall standards are maintained.

I am a qualified teacher of Physical Education and a keen sportsman. I firmly believe that enrichment is important in the shaping of our young people. I look forward to seeing what Trinity Academy Akroydon offers the students in terms of extra-curricular activities.

Interested in Becoming a Governor?

We are looking to recruit a number of governors to support our school.

The role of a governor can be very rewarding, and volunteering within our schools will provide you with the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to your local community and the future of our young people.

Governors will sit on our Local Governing Body and work with the senior leadership team to ensure students are receiving the best education possible and that all resources are being used effectively to support this ambition. A strong governing body is made up of a group of people who will contribute various skills and experience, and who will commit to working together for the benefit of the trust and the local communities in which we work.

Being a governor requires individuals to learn about schools and ways of working, and it is also about individuals bringing their skills and experience to contribute to an existing skillset. It is important that every governing body is made up of a group of people who have an understanding of their role and responsibilities, who are committed to gaining knowledge about the school and who will ask challenging questions to scrutinise leadership and decisions made within school. Governing bodies have key strategic responsibilities and these need to be explored within every meeting, without getting involved in the day to day operational activity within the school.

Governors play an important part in every school and we invite you to learn more about Trinity Multi-Academy Trust, our schools and the opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of our young people.

If you are interested in discussing our governor vacancies further, please complete the Expression of Interest form below and return to the email address given on the form. We will then get in touch to arrange a further conversation.
