The school team


Inaura charity owns and runs the school.  The Charity Trustees act as governors for the school. The charity's chief executive is also the school's Headteacher.

See: Senior Managers and Trustee governors

The Inaura staff team is made up of diverse, eclectic and talented individuals who are all passionate about what they do. We have a good balance ratio between male and female staff and a wide range of age and experience. Some of our staff have been with Inaura School for many years, but we also have 'fresh faces' joinng us every year as the school continues to grow and expand. We are proud of the friendly warm welcome our staff always offer to anyone coming to Inaura school.
