Meet the Governors

Brindley Heath Junior Academy and Foley Infant Academy share a Local Governing Body. The schools' Governors play an integral part in the life of Brindley Junior Academy. They generously give their time to support all areas of the school, providing a link between the MAT Trust Board, parents and the community - feeding into the Trust’s oversight and management of the school throughout their term of office.


Wherever appropriate, please contact the school at info@brindleyacademy.com. For the direct contact of the Chair of Governors please contact Irumble@manormat.com.
