Reverend Larry Wright

Safeguarding Governor

Foundation Governor

Revd Larry Wright is the vicar of St Nicolas' Church, Kings Norton which is part of the Kings Norton Team ministry. He grew up in Birmingham and served in two parishes in North Birmingham until coming to Kings Norton in 2016. He has been chair of governors in north Birmingham and is particularly keen to foster links between school, home and wider community. He is also a governor at Kings Norton Primary school and St Nicolas' church also has regular visits from other schools in the area. The link between the school and church is an important part of fostering our Christian ethos and we hope to build upon this link for the mutual benefit of both.



Reverend Tony Malcolm

Vice Chair of Governors

Foundation Governor

Revd Tony Malcom, Methodist Minister currently serving Dorridge. I represent the Birmingham Methodist Circuit as a Governor of Hawkesley Academy. I was born in Jamaica, moved to Sheffield when I was 11; married to Joanne, with 2 children. I have lived in Sheffield, Bristol, Darlington and Birmingham.  

My interests include eating, walking, kites and storytelling. For this year I've adopted Year 6, and look forward to spending more time with them.



Mr D Higgins

Head Teacher

Like many others, I too have a long association with Hawkesley. I lived on the estate and my son attended  Hawkesley Infant and Nursery  School. It was during that time that I volunteered to work in the junior school. This gave me a real thirst to become a teacher. I completed an Access course, supported by Hawkesley Junior School, and then completed a Bachelor of Education Degree at Westhill College. My first teaching job was at Hawkesley! After many years away, teaching in both Birmingham and Worcestershire,  I have returned to serve the school and its community. I am extremely proud and privileged to be the Head Teacher of Hawkesley Church Primary Academy.





Mrs Sharon Hart

Parent Governor

I am a parent governor at our school. My eldest daughter attends the school and my youngest daughter will be joining in September 2017. Currently, I am a stay-at-home mum but also carry out voluntary work for the local church which my family and I attend every week. Previously I have worked as a senior support worker for vulnerable young adults who have severe mental health impairments and challenging behaviour. This was a job i passionately enjoyed. However I I left this to start a family and to study for a degree. My link class this year is year three and I am excited to be working with them.
