Board of Governors
My name is Richard Ford and I am the Chair of Governors at Robert Bloomfield Academy. I have been Chair of Governors for some nine years and have been an active governor for over 14 years. Along with my brother, I have run the local Ford Dealership for the past 20 years. I am a keen "green" bowler and have been active in the local club for over 30 years. I have been the treasurer for the past 25 years. I live in Shefford with my wife Linda, who is a sub committee chair for Samuel Whitbread Governors, and our four teenage children.
You can review the full list of Governors serving on the Board of Governors below. There are four main committees, the details of which can also be viewed below, on which Governors sit and play an active role in the life of the school:
Any Governor can be reached through the clerk to the governors at school.
Our school is "foundation" (self governing), although we maintain a positive relationship with Central Beds Local Authority. We know Robert Bloomfield is an excellent school. We very much hope your children enjoy their time here and make the most of it. Our teachers are dedicated and hard working and we are proud of the pupils’ successes.
