The Maynard School is very fortunate in having a dedicated team of Governors providing an invaluable pool of expertise and experience that helps the Head to run, develop and ensure the long-term future of the School. Unusually for many independent schools, the majority of Maynard Governors live locally and take an active personal interest in the school and its pupils. Some Governors are appointed by outside agencies: the St John’s Hospital Educational Foundation, Devon County Council, Exeter City Council and the University of Exeter.
We also have co-opted Governors, Parent and Staff Governors. Governors also attend a great many school functions and run very successful annual development days for both Governors and senior staff. The Governors are appointed as trustees of The Maynard School and have responsibility to the Charity Commission to ensure it is run efficiently and complies with all legal and health and safety requirements.
Mr Henry Luce – Chair of Governors
Henry originally trained and qualified as a fund manager in London before joining Stormpress, his family print business, in 1988 where he was Managing Director from 1996 until his retirement in 2021. On retiring, Henry created an Employee Ownership Trust so Stormpress employees now own the majority of the business. He has chaired various trade associations and was also an executive member of Disaster Action, a small campaigning charity. He is also a past master of the Incorporation of Weavers, Fullers and Shearman, an Exeter Livery company. Henry has three daughters and two granddaughters.
