Grange Academy Local Advisory Board (LAB) Members

Our Local Advisory Board (LAB) meets once every term to discuss school business and monitor progress in meeting school improvement targets. The Chair of LAB keeps in close contact with the school throughout the year and meets regularly with the Head of School.
