An Academy of the Great Learners Trust




Bearbrook Board of Governors


Connecting our Community and making a positive difference to the futures of all

At Bearbrook our vision is "Education Excellence for our children: nurture, inspire, achieve. Our mission is to nurture and inspire our children, families, and staff to achieve, and become lifelong learners."

The Governors would like to thank all parents and carers, for their continued support and trust in our ever-improving school.


We would also like to say thank you to ALL our staff for their hard work and input into supporting the pupils in any way they can. It is their continued dedication that makes our school a welcoming and happy learning environment for the children.

Chair of Governors

(All written correspondence to be sent c/o Bearbrook Combined School)

The remit of the Governing Body:

  • Setting the school’s vision, ethos, and strategic direction;

  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent


We have structured our Committees to reflect this overall remit:

  • Local Governing Board Curriculum meeting (Co-chaired by Laura Boyle and Angela Mackay)  - This meeting also overs standards and any urgent other governor business.

  • Local Governing Board Resources / Health & Safety and Pay and Personnel (Co-chaired by Adrian Frantom and Angela Mackay) – This meeting also covers any other urgent governor business.

  • Local Governing Board – this meeting captures all governor responsibilities outside of the above two meetings remit.
