Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

Governor's Welcome


I would like to welcome you and your family to our school.  White Waltham 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 White Waltham for a number of years and have watched it grow and develop into the outstanding 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


Peter Pan School Production

What an amazing production! I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit as a Governor to the annual school production. I was so impressed with every detail, from the lavish set and costumes to the professional performances of every member of the cast. Congratulations to everyone.
