My name is Kathryn Watson and I am your Chair of Governors. I have lived in Woodborough for 17 years and am involved in many of the opportunities this wonderful village has to offer. I am a member of St. Swithun's church and have been a governor here since 2008 and Chair since 2012.

I am a retired Headteacher who taught much of her career in a church school in Mansfield. Because of this background I feel I can very much appreciate the significance of the Christian ethos as well as the complex environment that defines a school.

As a Foundation Governor, I feel privileged to be part of the life of Woods Foundation School. I have three granddaughters and in my spare time I enjoy reading, meeting my friends, walking and being outdoors.

Andrew Prestwich has been a governor at this school since 2007. 

He is currently the vice-chairman of governors and has at various times been a member of each of the sub-committees. 

His great grandfather, grandfather, mother and son all attended this school and he is sorry to have broken that tradition himself but, being brought up in Manchester, the daily commute would have been impractical. 

Andrew was a barrister for thirty years before taking early retirement to enable him to concentrate on his secondary job of taxi driver to the family, his son now being a demanding adolescent.

I am a retired teacher with experience across all Key Stages, specialising in Music and Religious Studies.

I live in Epperstone and am an active member of the school’s link church, St Swithun’s Woodborough.  Also I enjoy being involved in local community activities. I have been a Governor since 2011 and support the Christian ethos of the school. 

Greg joined the governing body in October 2017 as Local Authority governor. 

He is General Manager for a global engineering company, and has worked extensively across the UK, as well as Europe and US.

As a Woodborough resident with 2 children at Woods, Greg wanted to support the school and invest his time in the governing body.

I have been a Diocesan Governor here since 2017, having previously served as a governor on several schools over 25 years. I am a retired teacher and have worked latterly in year 5. I belong to St John’s Church in Mansfield where I live,  however l take part in several activities in Woodborough.  I enjoy walking, travel  and photography.
