Our school is governed at a local level by an Academy Committee, comprised of individuals local to our community who have a commitment to improving education, parents and staff. The Academy Committee’s main role is to carry forward the vision, values, ethos and strategic direction of the school, hold senior leaders to account for the educational performance of the school, and ensure the voices of stakeholders are heard. The Committee meets regularly and individual governors also visit the school to oversee specific aspects of our work.
Chair - Jeffrey Fillmore
Jeff worked in the Royal Navy - Submarine service and has been Humanities Governor link since May 2020 until his appointment to chair in September 2022.

Jeff's children attended Jack Hunt School, and he quickly understood the impact and opportunities that the school gave to young people and wanted to continue to support Jack Hunt School so more young people can benefit.
Chair: Jeffrey Fillmore
Vice Chair: Simon Banbury and Shelagh Crossley
Safeguarding and SEND Governor - ShelAgh Crossley
Shelagh has 30 years previous experience with Leeds City Council within Finance, Environmental Health, IT and latterly Corporate Asset Management. Shelagh is currently employed as an Exam Invigilator at Jack Hunt School – invigilating a range of exams both PPE (mocks) and public exams and specialised exam testing for external bodies and CATS exams for Year 7 pupils. I work with some of our young people who require specific invigilating requirements including reading, scribing, and reasonable adjustment needs
Shelagh became a governor as she always believed that it is important to take an interest in the school where young people go. I have two young people attending Jack Hunt – in Year 10 and 11, and I am keen to see that they receive a great education in a safe and stimulating environment, and what better way to influence than being a Governor. I have given the time that I can to support school and by doing so it allows me to be even more confident about the level of education being offered and the environment it is delivered.
Sixth Form Governor - Claire Banks
Claire has previously worked as a teacher and now regularly advise clients within the Education and Charity sectors. Claire is a keen gardener and enjoy growing (and eating!) home-grown produce from her allotment.
Claire became a governor to contribute and give something back to the community and putting my skills gained through both teaching and working as a solicitor to use.
