It is with a great sense of privilege that I accepted the appointment of Chairman of the Governors of St. Aubyn’s School.

I have been involved with the School since 1995 when my eldest daughter joined the reception class as part of the first intake of girls. Selecting a School that had taught only boys since 1884 felt like a very brave step for us as new parents. However, I have no doubt that it was one of the best steps we took on our daughter’s behalf and I hope that all parents of St. Aubyn’s pupils share this thought.


As the school is a charity (Charitable Trust Number 270143), with no shareholders or owners, all income received is spent on developing the resources and facilities. There is a continuing commitment by Governors to maintain a fully resourced well-staffed School, offering excellent modern facilities and small teaching groups and classes. I have seen dramatic changes and developments during my involvement with the School, not only in the numbers of pupils but also in the provision of additional and improved buildings and learning facilities which enable the School to continue to deliver exceptional educational opportunities for its pupils. It is always a pleasure to visit the school and see these facilities being used by the pupils using the words of our School motto – Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.





St Aubyn’s (Woodford Green) School Trust is both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales. The school Governors are Trustees and Directors accountable to the Charity Commission and Companies House. Governors are appointed by invitation of the Board, are not employees of the school and receive no remuneration for the services they provide.
