Chair of Governors: Stacy Sharman
I currently work for Stoke On Trent Council, working alongside communities and partners. I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I have a daughter in Key Stage 1. I am a governor as I want to help the academy to be the best it can be and for all children to achieve to the best of their ability and succeed throughout their time at Packmoor.
Vice Chair of Governors: Rod Hughes
I am Principal of Ormiston SWB Academy, having been in SWB since September 2018, prior to which I was Principal at Ormiston Horizon Academy for seven years. I have worked in several secondary schools across Shropshire, Staffordshire and Sandwell. I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two daughters. I think that it is vital that we make the transition from primary to secondary education as smooth as possible.
