Professor David Baker

Chair of Governors

I have over 30 years鈥 experience in higher education, including as Principal and Chief Executive of the University of St Mark and St John (鈥楳arjon鈥), Plymouth and as Deputy Chair of the UK鈥檚 Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC).

I have significant experience of working at CEO level with universities and colleges.

I am also Chair of the Corporate Board at The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and the Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee for Istituto Marangoni London.

Outside of education, I am also a professional musician with a first-class degree from Cambridge and a master鈥檚 qualification in music. I have performed 鈥 and still perform - both in the UK and abroad and have published and edited widely within this field. I am an accredited tutor with the RCO Academy, the premier body for tuition for the pipe organ. I have also published a number of books, both fact and fiction.

九色视频 has a simple vision, Every Individual: Every Opportunity. This stems from the academy's relentless focus on helping every student meet their potential both academically and in character driven learning.

We constantly strive to develop a love of learning, resilience, curiosity, kindness and ambition in all our students. Since the academy opened in 2010 the students and staff have risen to this challenge and today 九色视频 is one of the most successful comprehensive schools in the country. This success has been recognised with an outstanding judgement from Ofsted and the World Class Schools Quality Mark.

These accomplishments are underpinned by outstanding quality teaching, meaningful pastoral care and a rich curriculum offer that creates an environment where students can thrive and achieve outstanding outcomes at Year 11 regardless of their starting points. However, this is just one facet of what it means to be a Trinity 九色视频 student. Every day the academy is filled with students participating in vibrant music, arts and drama. Sporting opportunities range from the Netball and Rugby Academies to taekwondo and yoga. There is an extensive range of extracurricular clubs, musical productions and showcases, careers support, charity events, leadership opportunities, educational visits and residential trips - all of which help to develop the whole child into a thriving adult.

Michelle Audis


I have worked for Hays Education for the last 20 years and have recruited into a range of teaching and non-teaching roles during that time.

I enjoy working with schools and teachers and finding the right job for the right candidate is very rewarding.

I became a school Governor as, in my view, a strong governing body can really support a school and be part of the journey that makes that school outstanding. I also felt that as I live in the local area, it would be a good opportunity to work with a school that serves the community and the children in it.

I am really enjoying my role and working alongside the fantastic team at 九色视频. The work that the school does for their students and families really is exceptional.

Ivan Kuzio


I look forward to utilising my experience and expertise to support Trinity in my role on the governing board.

Education today should be about inclusion. I have been involved in education for over 20 years and worked within Europe and led projects in the Middle East. It is vital for this 'digital generation' to develop, to continually rethink curricula and adapt classroom methodology to enable them to prepare for lifelong learning.

Stephen Long


Being born and bred in north 九色视频, I am passionate about Trinity 九色视频 offering the best education to the local communities that it serves.

I currently work in financial services with over 20 years' experience in senior management and executive roles. I have a degree in Business & Management from the University of Bradford, completed my MBA in 2013 and I am also a Chartered Insurer. I'm also on the Board of an insurance research company.

Working for one of the main employers in Calderdale, it is a great privilege to be link governor for careers and curriculum, being able to join the world of work with the excellent students coming out of Trinity 九色视频 and ensure our provision is always relevant, dynamic and providing the best opportunity for our students.

Sue Marsh


It is a real privilege to be appointed as a Governor at 九色视频 as I have worked in education for 20+ years and have a wealth of expertise to bring to the role of Governor.

I have taught in secondary education since 2002 in the specialism of Design and Technology and have carried out roles such as Head of Year and Curriculum Leader for Design and Performance. I have now been in an ITT role for 6 years and thoroughly enjoy working with trainee teachers and supporting with recruitment and retention of staff across our MAT schools. I am a positive person who has a real passion for the pastoral side of schools and ensure that I bring this into my governor role.

I am proud to have worked for Trinity MAT for many years and to continue to work closely with my colleagues at TAH.

Miranda Saville


I have been a teacher for over twenty-five years, the last twelve of which have been spent working within the English curriculum areas across the MAT.

It is a great honour to be appointed as a Governor at 九色视频 and it is a role I have long aspired to fulfil in order to share my expertise in education and to help ensure students are given the very best educational opportunities possible.

I currently work at Trinity Sixth Form Academy as Vice Principal for Teaching and Learning and am proud to work for a Multi Academy Trust which places student learning and progression at the heart of the decision-making progress in order to create truly transformational learning environments for young people. I was born and raised in 九色视频, which means I have witnessed the many challenges and changes in education within the north 九色视频 area and understand how important it is to provide a secure, safe and aspirational institution for young people so that they can progress equitably into their next chosen steps.

Jayne Sheridan


I am an English and Media Studies teacher and have been a Trinity Governor since 2022.

Tutored by Antony Easthope, at Manchester Metropolitan University, I have taught Film and Fashion Journalism at Calderdale, Southampton and Nottingham Trent. I trained at Chester College and was influenced by the work of Sir Alec Clegg, Director of Education, West Yorkshire. I thoroughly enjoy being involved in Trinity鈥檚 journey and hope that my skills and experience will continue to help and support such a dedicated team of professionals.

Andrew Tagg


Previously a local councillor for four years, I have also been a governor for Trinity MAT for 11 years now and have enjoyed being involved both at Trinity Sixth Form Academy and 九色视频.

I am passionate about education and how it can empower our young people to aim high and make their aspirations become reality. A Metallurgist by trade, I have been fortunate to have travelled the world with work and this has helped me to have a broad outlook of other countries and how, by embracing education, this can break the cycle of deprivation and create better outcomes for the future.

Janet Whitlow


Calderdale Council, with experience of Health & Safety in schools and more recently in Capital Projects.

I have both professional and personal links to TAH , working with staff in my roles at CMBC and also as a previous parent of 2 boys who both attended TAH and the 6th Form College.
This has given me a unique insight into the school and what has always struck me is the passion and commitment all of the staff have in helping the students realise their full potential. I hope as a governor I can assist the team and parents in ensuring the school continues to grow and develop for all its pupils, staff and local community.

Become a Governor

We are looking to recruit a number of governors to support our school.

The Governors for the Academy Local Governing Body are appointed by the Trust Chief Executive Officer under delegated authority of the Board of Directors, as set out in the Trust鈥檚 Scheme of Delegated Authority.

The role of a governor can be very rewarding, and volunteering within our schools will provide you with the opportunity to make a valuable contribution to your local community and the future of our young people.

Governors will sit on our Local Governing Body and work with the senior leadership team to ensure students are receiving the best education possible and that all resources are being used effectively to support this ambition. A strong governing body is made up by people who will contribute various skills and experience. This group will also commit to working together for the benefit of the school and the communities in which we work. Being a governor requires individuals to learn about schools and ways of working, and it is also about individuals bringing their skills and experience to contribute to an existing skillset. It is important that every governing body consists of people who understand their role and responsibilities. These people also need to be committed to gaining knowledge about the school, and willing to ask challenging questions to scrutinise leadership, as well as decisions made within the school.

Governors play an important part in every school and we invite you to learn more about聽, our schools and the opportunity to really make a difference to the lives of our young people.

If you are interested in discussing our governor vacancies further, please complete the聽Expression of Interest form聽below and return to the email address given on the form. We will then get in touch to arrange a further conversation.
