Matthew Bryant

Matthew Bryant

Co-Opted Governor

Matthew has lived in the area for twenty years and has been a governor at Kings Avenue School since 2003. During that period he has seen many changes and has been impressed by the way in which the school has faced each new challenge and transformed itself from a failing school.
Matthew is an accountant by profession and works in the NHS. He is a member of the Resources Committee and uses his professional experience to help the school make best use of the budget available to it, especially the Pupil Premium. This has meant some difficult decisions in recent years as the funds available to schools have come under pressure. Matthew is passionate about making sure that each child makes the maximum progress during their years at Kings Avenue.

Alan Sendorek

Alan Sendorek

Co-Opted Governor

Alan became a governor in 2008 as a local resident who was interested in education, partly because his mum was a teacher. He used to work for the government doing media relations but is now employed by QPR to help them to build a new stadium. Alan sits on the Achievement Committee, which looks at how to make sure each child gets the best results that they are capable of. During his time on the governing body he has enjoyed seeing the transformation of Kings Avenue from a failing school ten years ago to one where there is good behaviour and high standards, led by a motivated and talented teaching staff.
