Carrickfergus Model Primary School

Inspiring excellence through example, endeavour and encouragement

Meet the Governors

  John Scott

My name is John Scott. I was appointed to be a Governor by the Education Authority. 

I wanted to become a Governor as after 40 years totally focused on work in the public and private sectors in the UK; I wanted to put something back into Northern Ireland in terms of supporting education which is key to our future. I wish I had done this earlier. Having previously served 9 years as a Governor of a post primary School in Northern Ireland, I am delighted now to work with this school.

My vision for the school is that Carrickfergus Model Primary School is a safe and happy place for its pupils; a school where difference is celebrated and every pupil is given the opportunity to shine.

Graham Magill

My name is Graham Magill.  I am a Parent Governor.

I became a governor so I could put the voice of the parents to the Board with the ultimate goal of helping the school achieve its aims.

My vision for the school is to assist the staff and parents to ensure all the pupils at Carrickfergus Model feel valued, build positive relationships and reach their full potential in a safe, caring and fun environment. 

Neil Entwistle

 My name is Neil Entwistle. I was appointed to be a Governor by the Education Authority.

I became a governor to further invest in the learning and development of children and young people in my local community and help the school to achieve its aims and objectives.

My vision for the school is that the children will be happy, safe and secure within the school environment; enjoy their learning experiences and that each child will achieve their potential.

Peter Howard


My name is Peter Howard and I was appointed by the Department of Education.

I have a long family connection with the school and wish to see it continue to thrive. 

I would like to see the pupils fulfil their potential and leave the school with a fully rounded education.
