The day-to-day running of CLASSS is managed primarily by Mrs Anne Williamson.

Mrs Williamson is a retired former nurse with an interest in education who first became a volunteer at Chapeltown and Harehills Assisted Learning Computer School (CHALCS), a large educational establishment at Technorth, a number of years ago. Mrs Williamson was involved with helping the younger children with their literacy and numeracy. When the coordinator of CHALCS retired Mrs Williamson was asked to take her place. When CHALCS was disbanded in 2007, Mrs Williamson joined with Mr Jalloh to form CLASSS in 2008. She is responsible for the management of the teaching of the primary school children at CLASSS.
