Mr Richard Johnston

Co-opted Governor

Appointed by Full Governing Body


"I was appointed as a Governor in December 2015. I have lived in Thursby for 6 years, and have two young children who will make their way through the school in the coming years. I hope that the skills and experiences I have gained in my role as Senior Manager for Active Cumbria can help the Governing Body, I have a real interest in ensuring that all children have the opportunity to be healthy and active, and I have a real passion for increasing participation in sport and physical activity. I look forward to working with the Headteacher and the rest of the Governors to continue to support the school moving forward"
