About Us

For your information, below is a list of Whitby Secondary Partnership’s current Governors who hold responsibility for strategic matters at Whitby Sixth Form. Should you wish to contact the Governing Body, you can do so via the Clerk, Sarah Marshall, sarah.marshall@northyorks.gov.uk. Please note that it is inappropriate to contact individual Governors under normal circumstances on school governance issues as Governors deal with matters under specific committee remits at the direction of the Chair of Governors or as delegated by the Principal.
