Governor Pen Portraits


Stephen Grimshaw (Co-opted Governor)

I became a school governor at Ightenhill after I retired from teaching.  Having been a high school teacher for nearly thirty years, I felt I should do something worthwhile in my retirement and give something back to the local community.


Knowing how difficult it is to run a school today, I thought that my experience in both the classroom and in middle management would come in useful at Igthenhill.


I believe that Ightenhill is a very successful school and that all the staff and governors are working very hard to ensure that this continues to be true.
