Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

Our Governing Board consists of 4 Members and 5 Directors who together, oversee the organisation and running of our Academy.


Mr Richard Thomas is our Chair of Governors; he has been part of the Nansloe family for the last 21 years and was instrumental in steering us successfully into becoming an Academy.


He is supported at the helm by our Vice-Chair, Mr Neill Wood, and 7 further Governors;


Reverend Dorothy Noakes, Mr David Thompson, Mrs Anita Charleston, Mr Chris Newby, Mr Andrew Charleston, Mr Brian Michael and our Head, Mr Charles Field.


Our Honorary Patron of the Nansloe Academy Trust is Mr I Milne, who stood down as a Governor in October 2018, following 21 years of dedicated Governor service to our school.
