Local Advisory Board

Welcome from the Chair

Lord Scudamore has been a very special place for me. My father had the privilege of being Headmaster in the 1980s and I enjoyed being a student in the same period. This was not the guaranteed path to homework exemptions and straight ‘A’s it may seem!It’s now my pleasure to be Chair of the Governors and I’m proud to work with the wonderful staff and Headteacher Alison Taylor. The team have worked tirelessly during a very challenging couple of years and have expertly adapted to new ways of teaching and upholding educational standards that our pupils, parents and carers expect of them. Our role as a governing body is to support all staff to deliver the best possible outcomes for pupils, through clear direction, stretching aims and objectives, challenging the leadership team and holding our leadership team accountable. We also make sure our budget is spent in a way that ensures our school’s improvement and the best delivery of the curriculum. On behalf of all at Lord Scudamore, I want to extend a warm welcome to our school. We have a high performing team who I know are looking forwards to maintaining their levels of hard works to keep our standards high and support students to achieve educational success.
