Welcome From Our Chair Of Governors



Welcome To the Fortuna/Athena Federation From Gail Brown, Chair Of Governors.



My name is Gail Brown and I am Chair of Governors for the Fortuna/Athena Federation of schools.

I have been a governor in Lincolnshire schools for some 30 years and during that time also served as a Local Leader of Governance.

My time served as a governor has seen many changes over the years, I do believe that the balance between Senior Leaders and Governors is the best it has ever been. School Leaders have a huge responsibility as educators but at the same time nurturing the whole child and supporting them with their emotional needs and preparing them for life as an adult in a very changing world.


We, at the Federation, have a commitment to providing the best all round support and education for the children in our care.

Fortuna has had four “Outstanding” Ofsted inspections and Athena has been given a solid “Good”,  with Leadership and Management “Outstanding”, of which as a “ team” we are very proud of.


As a Governing Body we support and challenge the Leadership Team and hold them to account , in the best interests of the children and staff.


Being a school governor is both rewarding and exciting , when working with such committed and hard working leaders. 

If any person has time and valuable skills they could share , then it would be great to hear from you, you can contact me through either school for a chat. 

At the Federation we work as a team to secure the best possible outcomes for all.

Our Vision is for both schools to be an “Outstanding” example of excellence for others in SEMH environments.
