New North Academy


Board of Governors - Welcome Message

We have a fantastic team of governors at The New North Academy, who bring an incredible breadth of skill to our academy’s leadership team. They have an important role in school to provide strategic leadership and accountability to our school. Their role is to set the aims and objectives for the academy, set the policies and targets to meet them and monitor and evaluate the progress the Academy is making towards reaching them.

The NNA governing body is a source of support and challenge to our headteacher and senior leadership team in school to ensure and bring about the absolute best for children and families.

This page holds a wealth of information about our governors who all work voluntarily, with real commitment, to strategically support the academy.
