Chair of Governors - Hubert Enright





Hubert became a parent Governor in July 1999 when his son, Mathew, was a pupil at Gallions Mount School. When Hubert’s four-year term as a parent governor came to an end, he was keen to continue to support and contribute to the school and was re-appointed as a co-opted governor. In July 2019 Hubert was re-appointed to the governing body and continues to sit on the board as our Chair of Governors. Hubert plays an active role in supporting pupil progress and whole school achievement by visiting the school often, sitting in on school council meetings, observing teaching and learning and accompanying the children on school trips and residential stays. Hubert is very proud to represent Gallions Mount as our Chair of Governors and hopes to see the school improve its ‘Good School’ rating to an Ofsted rated outstanding school.
