Message from Howard Morris, Chair of Governors

At CFS we are very fortunate to have a strong team of committed governors with a diverse skill set, bringing relevant expertise from a wide range of sectors, including; business, law, education, building development, technology, procurement, risk and finance. I have been involved with the school from the beginning of its journey, first as a member of the project steering group in the pre-opening stage and then as Chair of Governors, once opened.

It has been a pleasure to observe how the school community has grown and flourished over the past few years, delivering a high-quality education for all pupils and achieving exceptional academic results. The governing body have an important role in setting the strategic direction for the school and we are looking forward to some exciting times ahead, with the move to our new permanent site in Cobham and our first set of GCSE and A-level results.
