About our teaching school alliance

Roy Simpson

Roy was our Chair of Governors for over 20 years before becoming our current Chair of Trust at The Academy at Shotton Hall.

For as long as most people working at the Academy can remember, Roy has been central to the school working alongside four headteachers and overseeing the rebuild of the school in 2011.

He was recently awarded an MBE in recognition of his services to education, cricket and the community of Durham.
