Minerva Learning Trust


Our Local Governing Body is composed of Parent Governors (parents of students within the school) and Co-opted Governors (members of the local community or people with skills and experience in particular areas). Over an academic year, our Local Governing Body meets half-termly to oversee, scrutinise and challenge on all aspects relating to the function of our school.

Our schools also have Lead Governors responsible for overseeing specific areas of the school. Our Lead Governors are: 

Samantha Simpson - Safeguarding

Lucy McGann - Vulnerable Groups (including Pupil Premium)

Jacqui Dundas - SEND

Grant Walker - Careers

If you are interested in becoming one of our Governors you can find more information and apply through our Become a Minerva Governor page. 

The Chair of the school governing body is Ken Matthews and can be contacted by email enquries@handsworth-mlt.co.uk.

Complaints regarding the school are to follow the Trust Complaints procedure Link MLT Statutory Information - Complaints Procedure and should not be made directly to the Chair of Governors.
