Our parent governor plays an important role in the development of the College. Governors bring their understanding, skills and experience to the College to help drive it forwards and meet its strategic objectives.
Jennifer joined the Corporation as a Parent Governor in November 2021. She is a Primary School Business Manager with responsibility for HR, GDPR, Finance, Premise Management and Health and Safety. She also has over 30 years’ experience across a range of sectors including banking and social housing, providing a valuable range of cross-sector insight to the Corporation.
Jennifer’s daughter started in 2020, providing Jennifer and her family with first-hand experience of how supportive the college is in providing learning tailored to meet the needs of the individual students. Jennifer felt that she was able to give back to the college with the use of her skills and time as a parent governor. "My daughter has thrived and has made fantastic progress thanks to a cohesive approach between the college staff, my daughter and us as parents, we cannot thank Southport College enough".
In her spare time Jennifer sings in a worship group, plays the euphonium and conducts a brass band.
Become a Governor
At Southport and KGV Colleges we have an active board of governors who play an important role in the ongoing development of the College. Governors are from the local and wider community with a range of skills, knowledge and experience to help the College take forward its strategic objectives.
We value and promote equality and diversity and are committed to equality of opportunity for all and, when a vacancy arises, appointments are made on merit, also taking account of the need to fill any identified skills gaps.
Any person wishing to become a Governor should write to Lisa Farnhill, Clerk to the Corporation. Email FarnhillL@southport.ac.uk, for further information and an application pack:
The College’s Governors are led by Chair of the Corporation Christine Bampton, Vice Chair Paul Walker and Principal Michelle Brabner. They are supported by a number of independent governors, staff governors and a parent governor.
