A message from our Chair
It was an honour and a privilege to take over the role of Chair from Vice Chair in August 2020 and I am delighted to work with such a professional leadership team and fellow group of Governors. I have been involved with the College for many years and have enjoyed seeing it grow, shaping the curriculum to meet ever-changing stakeholder needs and welcoming more and more students through the doors of our campuses.
Our Governors share a common desire to support the College in maintaining a safe, stimulating and secure environment for all our students to enjoy their learning experience and succeed to achieve their aspirations. We are a team of volunteers from the local community and student and staff groups whose main role is to collectively support and challenge where appropriate and ensure delivery of the College’s vision and strategic direction.
I look forward to continuing to support the College in my role as Chair and seeing us grow even further as a successful and supportive hub in the heart of Buckinghamshire.
