Richard Bainbridge - Parent Governor

My name is Richard Bainbridge, I am a Senior Manager at BT and my daughter has just entered year 11. I have spent a very enjoyable 4 years as an active parent governor at Horsforth and having developed a good understanding of how the school operates I was delighted to be re-elected to support the staff and students for a second term. 
I am currently the 6th form liaison governor and a regular contributor to both the Finance & Premises and Curriculum committees. As part of my role as 6th form liaison governor I have visited Notre Dame 6th form college to understand how they organised and ran their 6th form, and worked with the School Leadership team to assess the Strengths & Weaknesses of Horsforth School's 6th form.
As a parent governor I am keen to make sure that I represent the views of as many parents as possible so please feel free to contact me (via the school website;  with any issues or questions you may have and I will do my best to respond.
