Meet The Governors

Mr M. Fargher

Chair of Local Governing Body

I have had the privilege of being a School Governor for over twenty years. During this time, I have chaired Boards at Infant, Junior and Secondary schools with post 16 provision. I have also worked with schools during challenging times as a Local Authority Appointed Governor to help them improve their provision.

I have always specialised in special needs provision and so have built up a good knowledge of these additional needs. I would like to support the young people at Friars using my skills and experience.

Over the years I have learnt the importance of working well with the school’s Senior Team and listening to the views of both students and parents and making informed decisions as a result.

Over my time as a Governor I have seen many young people grow and develop into young adults able to engage and thrive in our ever-changing world. This inspires me to continue this work at Friars.

We lead an active lifestyle at home, so I appreciate the benefits that sport and a healthy lifestyle offers, so am very supportive of Friars’ work in this area.

I have always been strong on young people benefiting from developing their whole person skills as well as their academic progress. This sets them up for life after school and prepares them for the outside world.

I hope to support Friars in this way and see more of our young people become successful young adults.
