Ken Mitchell

Term of office - 12.01.2015 - 31.08.2019


I am a co opted governor and took the position of chair in September 2013. I have continued in this position since the school became an academy in September 2015. Prior to this I was vice-chair of the full governing body and chair of the finance committee for three years.


During this time it has been a true pleasure to see the journey of improvement that the school has undertaken. Most importantly, this has been from a teaching and learning perspective, but also we have seen significant advancement in IT provision, sports programs, the quality of the buildings and infrastructure that the children are educated in.


I have a commercial background stretching back over 30 years. I have run my own businesses, worked for a number of multinational organisations and am now the Group Sales Director for a UK manufacturing company. Alongside this I also coach rugby for Sandbach RUFC junior section. Both of these areas of my life, I believe, lend themselves very well to my tasks as chair of the governing body and give me a great insight into what is required to make our school "outstanding!"


Having seen both my children fantastically educated at The Berkeley means I have every reason why I want to see the school to continue succeed and improve.


Please feel free to contact me through the school office if you have any questions or require any information about the role of the governing body.
