Meet the Governors
Chair of Governors Welcome
I would like to welcome you and your family to our school. Knowl Hill C of E Academy is a unique and special place where we nurture children from their first experience of education on their journey to become lifelong learners.
Every child is different and we work in partnership with parents to develop each individual to reach their full potential.
As the Chair of Governors I have been involved with Knowl Hill for a number of years and have watched it grow and develop into the wonderful school that it is today. With our rapidly changing environment I am confident that we can play our part in preparing our children for their future to be responsible, creative, well educated adults with a strong Christian ethos.
Chair of Governors
I very much enjoyed the show on Friday. All the children from youngest to oldest did so well and obviously very much enjoyed themselves. The theme of important dates through the ages increased their knowledge of history and the introductions to every dance gave each year the chance to demonstrate their reading skills which were excellent. Lovely costumes, enthusiastic dancing and great music made it a very enjoyable show.
