Academy Council

Governance of King’s Oak Academy is undertaken by the Cabot Board and the King’s Oak Academy Council.  This  Academy Council consists of a mix of sponsor appointees, our Associate Principal Katherine Ogden, plus elected staff and parent representatives.

The Clerk to Academy Council, Mrs Leigh Paul, can be contacted by email: [email protected]

At King’s Oak Academy we are sure that by working together – parents, staff, Academy Council members and students – we can achieve success on our journey to “Outstanding!”
