Meet the Governors

Governor's Welcome


I would like to welcome you and your family to our school. Bisham 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 Bisham for the last four years and have watched it grow and develop into the fantastic 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.

Governor Comments


I had the pleasure of attending my first Bisham end of year awards ceremony and it was heartwarming. The children all filed into the hall and sat calmly and happily listened as Mrs Morel announced each winner, providing wonderful context as to why each individual had been awarded and many of these were not simply for academic achievement but for making progress and trying hard. It was wonderful to see the children glow with pride and new found confidence as they stepped up to accept their certificate from Mrs Morel to the warm applause of their schoolmates and parents.
