My name is Chris Connoll and I am one of the Vice-Chairs of Governors at Grangehurst where I have been a governor since 2015. In my younger years I attended Grangehurst as a pupil which I why I have returned as a Governor as I am passionate about ensuring our young people achieve their maximum potential.
I work for the Holy Cross Catholic MAC in two roles overseeing ICT strategy at trust level but also working at Cardinal Newman School providing IT Management. My main role is ensuring that pupils can achieve their very best using the technology we have. These roles give me an immense amount of experience in the behind the scenes of a working school.
I am currently reading ‘Once upon a Tyne’ by Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.
