The Oaks School Governors

The Governing Board at our school is an active body of enthusiastic volunteers who have our children’s best interests at heart. They work tirelessly to support our ethos of “Bringing Learning to Life” and ensure that all aspects of governorship are focused to this end. Each individual member of the Board brings their own area of expertise into school to support learning.
