Welcome to our Governors' section.

A word from the Chair of Governors

I have a lot to thank for education. The daughter of two teachers, I worked hard at grammar school which launched me to a top university and then on to a career in journalism. My academic achievements were a passport to greater self-confidence and work success, and I am a great believer in education being the gateway to following your dreams. William Gilpin Church of England VA School is very small but it bats beyond its weight, and I am proud to be involved in improving standards at the school and making your children’s experience of education enriching and enjoyable. 

 Mrs Sue Leach, Chair of Governors
