My name is David Neilson and I am pleased to advise that I am the Chair of Governors of our school. The Governing Body works closely supporting our Headteacher and her team in ensuring that Drayton Park becomes an OUTSTANDING school.

Like most governing bodies we occasionally have vacancies and would welcome any interest from potential candidates. The amazing children we have as students would also be pleased to welcome you and involve you in their learning journey.
