About our teaching school alliance

Sandra Mason

I have been a school governor at The Academy at Shotton Hall for a number of years and even attended the school as a pupil many years ago. I am very proud to have been involved with the school and seen it grow and prosper over the years. I am also a community governor at South Hetton Primary School.

I have been a civil servant since 1977 and have undertaken many different roles in various  government departments. I have managed a number of projects and I use this knowledge to keep track of all up to date information that a school governor needs to be aware of. I have been on a number of different committees over time and the constant is the personnel committee where I use the experience I have developed at work in interviewing and my knowledge of HR issues to help recruit personnel into the school.

I am married with one daughter who also attended Shotton Hall School. I have lots of community based involvement in my hobbies and I currently manage the Social Justice Centre of Excellence. I am also a Sunderland season ticket holder so life is always challenging and never boring.
