David Mitchell

Chair of Governors

When I retired from Gateshead Council in 2011, I was invited by the Headteacher to join the Governing Body at Gibside. I was pleased to do this, as I am passionate about supporting SEND children.  I was proud to be appointed Chair of the Governing Body in 2017, and have remained as Chair since then.  This allowed me to be closely involved in the development of our wonderful new building. I am proud to be Chair of Governors at our “Outstanding” school, and to work with a great team of governors. In my spare time I enjoy playing my trombone.
