LADY HAWKINS’ SCHOOL

Find out more about our Governors

 

The Governing Body has three core strategic functions. These are:

  1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  2. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent

The board of governors operates at a strategic level, leaving the headteacher and senior colleagues responsible and accountable to it for the operational day-to-day running of the school.

Our Governing Body is made up of volunteers from the local community, parents and members of school staff.  Each governor brings their own range of skills and expertise to the governing body.

I studied an Events Management Degree at the University of Gloucestershire then moved back to the area and have worked for NFU Mutual for over 5 years. I am very community minded and am heavily involved with the community organisations as well as being Chairman of Kington Chamber of Trade for over 2 years.

Staffing Committee

I was brought up on a fruit and sheep farm in Staunton-on-Arrow and attended Lady Hawkins’ School a few years ago!  After completing a medical degree in Newcastle Upon Tyne I have worked in various jobs in England, Guyana, New Zealand and Guatemala.  Since 1998 I have worked as a GP in the Welsh Borders.  My three children currently attend LHS and are the fifth generation in our family to do so.  I believe in good communication and teamwork.  I want to support the school in providing a broad and good quality education for all its pupils and for it to give them the confidence to achieve their aspirations.
