A word from the Governors 

The governors, who have a wealth of experience between them, are firmly committed to ensuring that the highest standards of education are maintained throughout Symondsbury School.  Governors are very much ‘hands on’ and play an active role in the management of the school and supporting the staff.  The Governing Body is ambitious for the future and always striving to improve the already excellent facilities and resources.  The Governors value and support the long-held reputation of Symondsbury School for  providing a safe, happy and family orientated environment in which the children can learn and develop.
