Ridgeway Learning Partnership

Welcome from Julian Cacchioli 

A warm welcome to Grove Road Primary School at the heart of the Tring community. The ethos of our school - “Growing and Achieving Together” – is delivered through the partnership of governors, teaching staff, parents and trustees.  

Our shared ambition is to provide our children with the curiosity, confidence and resilience that will allow them to maximise their potential throughout their education journey and beyond.  

As the governing body, our role is to provide strategic direction and support to the head teacher and her talented and dedicated team, at the same time as ensuring accountability and a mindset of ‘continuous improvement’. The governors all come from different backgrounds and bring a variety of experience, knowledge and perspectives, but what they all have in common is a passion for our community and a commitment to ensuring all of our children feel happy, supported and able to strive for accomplishment at Grove Road school.  

Please take some time to learn more about your governing body and should you have any questions of comments, send them to
