Governor Statement: 

My involvement with the Governing Body started in 2008, as a Parent Governor when my son joined the school.
When he left Southlands, I remained on the Governing Body and more recently became the Chair. My background is in banking and I have an understanding of business needs and helping customers.
One of the key reasons I continued my involvement is that I recognise the great work that the school is doing for the children and young adults in North Tyneside.
We do our utmost to ensure that the high standards are maintained.
I am proud to be associated with Southlands.
