Governor News

A long-serving Governor of TPS stepped down last night after 19 years.

Deputy Leader of EHDC, Julie Butler, joined the Governing Body in 2000 and has worked with 3 heads over that time – Kathy Bell, Nigel Poole and Mark Marande - who she appointed in 2016 when she was Chair of Governors.

Julie has been a huge supporter and friend of the school and she will be very much missed, although she will still remain involved with the Bohunt Education Trust (BET) as a BET Trustee.

Also stepping down is current Chair of Governors, Dr Ben Francombe, who has been in post for three years, and we are delighted that he will be staying on as Community Governor.  Ben has been a fabulous Chair, and “critical friend”, leading the Governors with intelligence and with his trademark pithy wit.
