Governing Body


Welcome to the Parent’s page of the website

Let me firstly start off by saying that as your duly elected members of the GPS Governing Body, we view our role as an honour and indeed a privilege.

We represent the combined interests of all families at the school in ensuring that Glenwood Prep continues to offer a holistic, relevant and innovative education package to our children.

The synergy of the elected Governing Body members, Co-opted members and the School Management Team ensures that the interests of all parties are collectively enhanced thereby ensuring that Glenwood Preparatory remains at the forefront of Primary School education.

The Governing Body wishes to extend an invitation to all current and prospective future parents to actively participate in their children’s education and school activities. Supporting one’s child and the school is a most rewarding investment… such positive input will undoubtedly result in our children being able to successfully negotiate the many challenges that high school and adult life will one day bring.

It is hoped that our parents will make use of this website to establish an active rapport with the Governing Body. Please email us with any comments or queries at  We value your input and trust that such interaction will further promote the relationship of all parties at the School.
