The Governing Body include representation from staff, parents, Cheshire West and our local community of Frodsham. Feedback is always welcome and we can be contacted through the school office where you can also ask for copies of meeting minutes.

Co-opted Governor - 4 year term of office - Ends July 2019

I started my second stint as a Governor at Frodsham Manor House in October 2015. Having previously been a Governor for a ten year period from 2004, I have witnessed the significant improvement in the school over the years and I jumped at the opportunity to be a Governor again so that I can help to support the further development of the school. As a parent to three teenage children who all attended the school, I can attest to the tremendously positive effect it has had on their life and I am keen to ensure that as many other children as possible also benefit from the same opportunities. The very best thing about being a Governor is the opportunity to be in the school meeting all the children who are such amazing ambassadors for the school so I plan to take as full a part in school life as I can. I also sit on the Governing Body as Vice Chair at Kingsley County Primary School.

Chair of Teaching and Learning committee

Co-opted - Ends July 2019

I have been a Governor at Frodsham Manor House since 2009 and both my children are at school here. I am an active member of the Governing body visiting school on a regular basis. Having spent my career teaching in the secondary and Sixth form sectors, I welcome the refreshing opportunity to extend my educational interest beyond the realms of teenagers and into the primary sector. I enjoy seeing how education can make a difference to a child's life and how it impacts upon the aspirations and confidence of pupils - all of which I believe are encouraged positively here at Frodsham Manor House.  It is rewarding, as a Governor, to work in partnership with so many people to ensure that the children have a happy, safe and secure environment to learn and achieve their potential.

Parent Governor - 4 year term of office - Ends October 2017

I've been a parent governor at Frodsham Manor House since 2013. I have one child at the school who is happy and benefits hugely from the wealth of opportunity this school offers.  My elder child has just made the transition to Year 7 at Helsby High School. I thoroughly enjoy visiting the school, spending time in the classes and getting involved in the wider life of the school. I am a trained secondary teacher, however I currently work in a primary school as a 1:1 teaching assistant.   My time as a governor has been hugely rewarding and I am committed to my role in ensuring the best educational experience for all the children here. I feel extremely proud to be a small part of the continued success of this fantastic school.

I sit on the Governing Body in my capacity as the head teacher here at Manor House. I have been the head teacher here for nine years, having previously been head teacher at Eaton Primary School. I adore my role as head teacher and I am exceptionally proud of all the achievements that have taken place here and obviously exceptionally proud of all the members of staff and the 217 wonderful children we currently have on roll. Away from education, I am a very proud dad to three super children - Ellie, Meg and Harry - and I also have a great interest in performing on stage. The children at school have seen me performing in a number of pantomimes! I sit on the Governing Body of Helsby High School as an Associate Governor. My wife  - Mrs Deborah Devereux-Roberts - has just commenced employment as a specialist  0.2 FTE Teaching Assistant here at school.

Local Authority Governor - 4 year term of office - Ends July 2019

I don't have children at the school but live locally and have Chaired the Town Council for the last 4 years and readily identified Frodsham Manor House school as a real asset to the community that I want to contribute to. My professional occupation is Airline Pilot, so there might be an opportunity to instil career ideas and opportunities that aren't football, pop star or F1 dominated. I also have a basic rugby coaching qualification, so expect the pupils to be playing with a proper shaped ball sometime soon!

I lead on the finance matters for the school. The ambition of the school and the passion it has to achieve the best for every child is something that is important to me. As a qualified accountant with 14 years experience in finance across different sectors including education, health and private sector (5 years at senior management level) I believe I have a wealth of skills to complement the Governing body. I have 2 children currently in the school and 1 in Play Den, and it's great to see them all so happy at school.
