3 New Trustees
We are delighted to Welcome 3 new Trustees to our Board. Please see details below:
Judith Constable has had a long career in education, including three successful headships in local primary schools. Since retiring from headship, she has been working for the Regional Schools Commissioner as an Education Adviser and as a coach and facilitator on nationally accredited leadership training programmes for school leaders.
As a Trustee, Judith has a particular interest in raising standards through the support and development of school leaders, continuing a career-long aim of securing a great education for every child.
Catherine is a chartered account, and her 3 children all attended Sandcross School. She was a governor of Sandcross for 5 years, and chaired the Resources Committee. She has also been a governor of Newdigate School and treasurer for St Paul’s Church, Dorking, and was Director of Finance for Reigate Sixth Form College for 3 years. Catherine currently works as Director of Reward in a private equity firm in London, and is also a trustee of the firm’s charitable trust. Her work experience and voluntary roles have provided her with strong understanding of financial management of schools, and of the competing priorities which the trustees will need to balance.
