Governing Body

 Duncan McAlpine
Message from the Chair of Governors

I have been a member of the governing body since 23rd November 2015. My background is in education. I was a Headteacher of a local primary school for 26 years. I left the school in July 2014, and now work as an Associate Lecturer at the University of Northampton, working with students who are training to be teachers.

I am pleased to be involved with the Abbey Primary School. When I spend time in the school I am impressed with the hardworking and dedicated adults and the excellent behaviour of the children and how hard they work in their lessons.

I feel honoured to have been chosen to be Chair of Governors, and I look forward to working with the Senior Leadership Team as we work towards taking our school from Good to Outstanding.

Mr Duncan McAlpine
Chair of Governors - The Abbey Primary School
