Governing Body

Welcome

My name is Bob Watson and I am the Chair of Governors here at Chauncy. I look forward to working with the senior management team and all the staff to continue the exceptional work that has already taken place and moving the school forward. Chauncy is the finest exponent of a secondary school I know, with record exam results across the board and a real passion for ensuring all pupils achieve well, whatever their abilities on joining the school.
