Academy Council Profiles

Mr Phil Jackson

Hello, my name is Phil Jackson and I am the Chair of the Academy Council here at Christ the King. I have represented the school as a Governor for 14 years.

In that time I have watched my three children successfully develop through a school that helped them nurture their talents and prepare them for high school.

The school and parish is a huge part of my life. I am proud to lead the Academy Council and work closely with staff at the school, as well as representing the school on the Academy Trust Board.

These are certainly exciting times at Christ the King. The children are fantastic, the staff are excellent and the leadership team have a clear vision for the school which the Academy Council supports. They are working for your children, developing young talent and unlocking the potential of every child has on a daily basis. 

Thank you for trusting us.

Mrs Angela Holt

Hi, I'm Angela Holt and I have had links with Christ the King since my eldest grandson started nursery here in 2002. I was invited to become a Foundation Governor in 2014. As a retired primary school Headteacher I enjoy using my skills to support the school in a variety of ways. I am Chair of the Teaching and Learning Committee and also have responsibility for Early Years, History and Geography. I have seen many changes at CTK over the years, but I can honestly say that it has been transformed over the past two years, thanks to the hard work and dedication of all the staff. I am looking forward to my youngest grandson starting in Reception in 2020!
