Mr Brian Williams - Chair of Governors / Responsible for Curriculum and Standards
I am delighted to be a Governor of B.P.A. I join this governing body after working for over twenty years in education. I have been lucky enough to have worked across all age ranges in a variety of positions from Class Teacher, to Advisory Teacher and as a Head of School.
I am now retired and spend my days reading, writing, walking and cycling around the valleys of Kirklees. I love music and travelling and consider myself to be learning all the time. I am therefore very happy to be a part of this exciting new venture which has, of course, the experience of learning, at its core.
It is exciting to be participating in this new project and to be one small part of a team that is committed to providing the children of this area with an outstanding educational experience. I look forward to meeting and working with teachers, parents, carers and all school staff as we prepare our young people to be articulate, positive and active members of our community whilst readying them for life beyond the boundaries of school.

Mr Paul K Turner - Vice Chair / Responsibility for Health and Safety
After finishing my degree in Engineering at Huddersfield University in 2003, I have been working for Cummins Turbo Technologies in a variety of different roles including Project Engineer, Operations Leader for the aftermarket remanufacturing department, and most recently within the company’s worldwide manufacturing support group where I have responsibility for new product launch strategy and integration.
Having my own children at Infant and Primary school, I take an increasing interest in their education, their environment and how school encourages and helps them to learn through interesting topics and activities.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, taking days out and about on our bikes. I also play rugby through the winter which involves many Saturday afternoons playing and some training during the week. I would really like to get involved with coaching over the next 2 to 3 years.
