Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

I am honoured to introduce myself as the Chair of Governors of Ponthir Church in Wales school. My connections with the school date back to the 1980s when both my sons were pupils at the school. I am delighted to have the opportunity to repay the school for the wonderful start in life that it gave to my children.

I look forward to a successful and fulfilling year ahead and to working with you all for the mutual benefit of our school.

Welcome to you all.
