Grasmere Academy has a Governing Body which ensures the school is securing the best possible provision and outcomes for every child. Governors meet regularly to review the school’s progress and to monitor plans for improvement. Governors come from all walks of life bringing their particular skills and experiences to the school.


The Academy also has a Board of Directors representing the academy sponsor: North Tyneside Academy Foundation. The sponsor’s Chief Executive sits on the school Governing Body.  Representatives from North Tyneside Learning Trust also sit on our Governing Body.

A welcome from the Chair of Governors

Welcome to the Governor section of the website

Governors come from all walks of life and our Governing Body is no different! We have Headteachers, Scientists, Accountants, Staff, Civil Servants, Self-employed people and most importantly Parents. To be a Governor all you have to do is give up your time to spend in School attending meetings and events. We have a full Governing Body meeting every half term to ensure the Academy runs smoothly, in addition we have Committee meetings to oversee Finance and Staffing matters, Quality, to ensure that all children in the Acadmey progress and achieve their full potential and Ethos to ensure that the spirit and character of the Academy remains intact.

It is a very rewarding role as you see the children flourish, grow and prepare themselves for their next adventure in life.
