Governors

Twickenham School governing body is made up of people from the school's community. Their role, together with the Headteacher, is to set the future direction of the school. The governing body makes decisions on issues such as performance targets, school policies and the School Development Plan. Because our governors have a variety of skills and experience, they are able to support and advise the Headteacher, as well as responding to government initiatives and inspection recommendations.

Members of the Governing Body:

 

Mary Parker - Co-opted Safeguarding Governor

As an architect, Mary is focussed on the learning environment both inside and outside the school, and looks at how it can be a safe and inspiring place.

She has been a governor at Twickenham School since it became part of the RWST.  

Also a governor at a local primary school, she has a keen interest on how the transition from primary to secondary works successfully for the whole school community. 

Sam Burns – Co-opted

Sam has been working in education for 10 years; he loves science, in particular, Biology. Prior to this he worked in an internationally renowned children's cancer research hospital in the USA as a senior research technician. 

Sam is a Harlequins and Arsenal fan, plays the guitar and coaches rugby, netball and athletics. He believes education should have a holistic approach and is excited to have the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing success of the school. 

Roger Hackett - Co-opted

Roger has experience as a member of all the committees that report to the governing body. He is currently Vice-Chair of the Resources Committee focusing on finance and HR. 

He has previously worked in the private, public, and charitable sectors. His focus is on helping the Leadership Team deal with the current financial environment and implementing the Schools HR Policies.

Claire Little - Co-opted Chair of Governors, c/o the school

Claire has been Chair of Governors at Twickenham School since the school joined the RWST, having previously been Vice Chair of Governors at Teddington School.  She is also a trustee of the RWST.

Claire specialises in Leadership Development and, as a group HR director, supports the Trust from an HR and management perspective.

Claire Pitchford – Co-opted

Claire is an Assistant Head (Head of Sixth Form) at a secondary school in Surrey. She completed her PGCE at the University of Cambridge, where she subsequently went on to complete a Masters in Education whilst embarking upon her career as a Secondary School teacher. Her subject specialisms are Drama and English, to which she remains very dedicated, regularly enjoying attending the theatre and recommending books to her students to develop themselves beyond the curriculum. 

Her pastoral and academic experience have been gained in a number of schools where she has undertaken both academic and pastoral management roles.

Having completed the NPQSL she now works in senior leadership and is a trained Safeguarding Lead. She is a passionate educationalist and, as a teacher and a governor, she dedicates her time to ensuring that the young people in her care have opportunity and ambition. 

Adrian Taylor - Co-opted Parent

Adrian has been a co-opted parent governor for three years and has a son at the school.

He is the newly appointed Chair of the Resources Committee, with a focus on finance and HR.
Adrian has over 30 years of experience in IT and business.

Away from the school he is a coach at Twickenham Rugby Football Club.

Sarah Weinberg - Co-opted

Sarah has two teenage children who attend their local school – Hampton High – so she fully supports the RWST vision to inspire everyone to achieve, enjoy and flourish beyond their own expectations.

She feels honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to the success of Twickenham School by being a governor for the School Improvement Committee.

Her professional background is in educational and medical publishing, working in psychological and educational assessment.
