Fox Grove School Governance Arrangements


The Local Governance Board (LGB) is a committee with delegated responsibilities on behalf of THPT Board to provide support and challenge, with a view to ensuring the quality of education provision.

Currently during the pre-opening phase, Fox Grove School has an Interim LGB comprised of three Trustees with the aim of moving towards a formally constituted LGB once the school opens. Further details of the Interim LGB are shown below:

Mrs Jane Cunliffe – Chair of the Interim LGB

Mr Paul Belok – Vice Chair of the Interim LGB

Sir Mark Lowcock – Interim LGB Safeguarding Governor

The business interests for the members of the Interim LGB can be found on THPT website.

If you wish to make contact with the Interim LGB or are interested in becoming a Local Governor at Fox Grove School in the future, please contact THPT Governance & Clerking Manager, Russha Sellings:
