School Governors


Canon Peter Coates - Foundation Governor

Chair of Governors


As a Parish Priest in the area for the last 33 years I have had enjoyed working in many of our Schools. I love the whole process of learning through all our lives and I hope I have been able to contribute through our Schools to the flourishing of many. I have been a governor at the Magdalen School in Wainfleet, the Eresby School in Spilsby and at present also at The William Lovall Academy and our own school here (for the last 15 years). As Chair of the Governing Board I see myself as a link person and value the collective wisdom of my fellow governors, teachers, parents and supporters. I am married to Fr Jean who is Bishop’s Visitor to school and we both have the wellbeing of the school very much at the centre of our work. Not to mention Mollie the Collie who helps in this work.

London born but raised in the Royal Forest of Dean I moved to Grantham for teacher training, working first in London then in Bourne before settling in Cambridgeshire. There I headed the Special Needs department in a large Comprehensive for 14 years before moving over to pastoral management as Head of Year. My year group was 300+ students. I retired 9 years ago and spent time school bus driving and supply teaching in my old school and the local primary. We relocated near to family in Spilsby in 2016.

Here I have joined U3A and Alford Silver Band where I serve on the committee looking after outreach. I sit on the local scout association executive committee and volunteer with Spilsby Good Neighbours scheme. My interests include skiing, reading and walking the Wolds.
