Brian Doidge 

My name is Brian and I became a Local Authority Governor at the end of June 2016. Although originally from Plymouth, I have lived in Somerset since 1988 and very much feel that this is my home now.  I am passionate about the invaluable role that education plays in our society and am committed to working as part of our team of Governors to make the School all that it can be and to provide an engaging and rewarding experience for our pupils, which remain at the very heart of what we do.
