Pen Portrait of Pat Fox
Foundation Governor


My name is Pat Fox. I have been a member of Hadrian’s Governing Body since I retired as a Senior Teacher at Hadrian in 2009. I have been Chair for the past 8 years.

I have previously worked as an Infant Teacher and I have also worked in most of the Specialist Schools in Newcastle. I am a member of Newcastle City’s SACRE Committee which leads on all matters relating to religion in all off Newcastle’s Schools.

I am married with two adult daughters and four adult grandsons.

Since I was eight years old I have been very involved in Girl Guiding and now I manage the shop selling badges, uniforms etc. I have held many roles within this organisation, including running Rainbow, Brownie and Guide units. I have also held management roles and for many years I have been the adviser for members with additional needs (both adults and girls) in the Girl Guiding world.

I am also very involved with our United Reform Church in the West End where my husband and I are both Elders.

I am very proud of Hadrian School which is superbly led by Chris and his Leadership Team. We have an amazing staff and wonderful children at Hadrian.

As Chair of Hadrian School’s Governing Body, I am more than happy for any parents or members of staff to contact me directly. My contact details are listed in the Governors Committee links section.
