WELCOME from the


I was honoured to be appointed as the Chair of Governors for Eden Boys’ Leadership Academy, Manchester and am absolutely committed to ensuring that the Academy offers a positive, enriching and transformative educational experience to its pupils.

I, along with my fellow Governors, ensure that the Academy delivers on the priorities and promises set out in the Star Pledge to Pupils and Parents. We work hard to ensure that the Academy provides an exemplary quality of education to every pupil, alongside memorable, enriching and rewarding learning experiences that are grounded in the Academy’s mission to promote educational excellence, character development and service to communities. We also monitor the impact of the Academy’s leadership specialism and ensure that all pupils are sufficiently challenged in order to fully realise their potential.

Working with the Board of Trustees and Star Academies, together we oversee the Academy’s performance in many other key areas, ensuring that pupils benefit from a high quality of teaching and learning, and that leaders make strategic and operational decisions that are always in the best interests of the Academy. We make sure the Academy is fully compliant with its legal and financial responsibilities, and hold the Academy to account for pupils’ safety, ensuring all the necessary safeguarding and pastoral arrangements are in place to promote a strong and supportive community culture where pupils feel safe, happy and well. We also ensure the Academy upholds its STAR values of Service, Teamwork, Ambition and Respect in all that it does.

We are committed to forming collaborative relationships with parents and the local community to ensure that Eden Boys’ Leadership Academy, Manchester can excel and thrive in all aspects of its provision, and we feel privileged to play a part in shaping the future of this very special school.
