We are extremely fortunate here at Malcolm Sargent Primary School to be part of a thriving community based in an historic market town on the edge of some of the loveliest countryside in Britain.  I was initially associated with the school as a parent and subsequently joined the Governing Body in 1996, becoming Chairman in January 2000.  The Governors, who represent a cross-section of the community, possess an excellent mix of business and commercial skills enabling the school to enjoy a wide range of management expertise.  Most importantly, though, they are committed to the continued improvement and development of an already successful school.  All the Governors give generously of their time and knowledge to keep Malcolm Sargent Primary School one of the most respected and well-resourced primary schools in the Country. 

 Mr Ken Swanson, Chair of the Governing Body
