Chair of Governors

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 have been working in the banking sector for the last 10 years. Throughout my time I have been delivering seminars to young people on how they can manage their finances and make them fully equipped in later life.

I have lived in Halifax for the last 30 years and have 3 children.

I want to be a governor so that I can give something back to the community and support young children to make positive choices for their own future.

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.

Neil Mallinson

I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to serve as a governor for Trinity Academy Akroydon.

I am very pleased to be given the opportunity to serve as a governor for Akroydon Primary School.

I firmly believe that children are our future and every child deserves to be given an equal opportunity to develop their potential in life through quality education.

I have previously held a governors position for over 8 years with a Calderdale school and now look forward to contributing towards the progression in achieving a ‘Outstanding’ status, which is the aim of everyone involved with the school and our children deserve our dedication to achieve this.

I have lived in Halifax for over 30 years, and presently work for a local housing provider who provides over 11,000 homes in Calderdale.

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.
