I have been the Methodist Minister for Stapenhill for 5 years  and as a part of  getting involved in the community I became a governor at this school 5 years  ago,  I visit regularly for school assemblies and thoroughly enjoy my association with the school, pupils and staff .  I believe that Stapenhill is a very special area and I count it as an enormous privilege to serve its people through the chapel and the school.
