Hello. my name is Linda Chapman and I have been a Manager at the Hospital School for the last six years. I am a Local Authority (LA) Manager which means that my name was put forward to the Management Committee by The LA. I am a former teacher and Education Adviser and although I am now retired, I am still passionately interested in schools and young people, particularly those youngsters who need extra help and support to succeed and thrive.
I love coming to the hospital school regularly to see how the pupils are responding to all the exciting activities and lessons that the staff have planned. If you see my in school please come and say "Hello".
I have two grown up daughters and now that my work and parenting duties have eased, I love travelling with my husband in our little campervan, knitting, reading,, arts and crafts and making quirky things from odds and ends
.I am currently chair of the Management Committee and sit on the Policy sub-committee and Th Pay and Performance sub-committee.
