Governors: Farewell & Hello

15th August 19

I am very grateful for the support of our Board of Governors. I am conscious of the increasing demands of their role as they volunteer their own time and expertise for the school; no more so than the Chair of the Board. The relationship between a Head and Chair is an important one, particularly so in the appointment of a new Head. For the short time I have had the privilege of knowing Mr Brian Welch, I am personally indebted to him for the support he has given me. After eleven years of dedicated service to Prince’s Mead, nine of these as Chairman of the Board, Brian is stepping down in this capacity at the end of the academic year. I would like to thank Brian for his wisdom and support for the school during an exciting period in its development. I am however delighted to be working with Mrs Mel Renwick who has been unanimously elected by the Board as Brian’s successor as Chair for the new academic year. A number of you will be familiar with Mrs Renwick as a former Prince’s Mead parent who has had a long-standing relationship with the school, more recently as a highly capable member of our Board of Governors.

Mr Peter Thacker
