Governor Profiles

Mr L Burgess (Chair)

Lee joined the Board of Governors in October 2012 as a parent governor and was appointed Chair in June 2013. Lee has a long affiliation with Hexton and returned to live in the village with his family in March 2012, having previously spent his teenage years growing up here. Lee works in the commercial aviation sector for an aircraft maintenance company where he is a senior manager. He has two daughters who both attend Hexton JMI School.

Mrs J Webb

I have a passion and commitment to children’s education and being Headteacher of Hexton School puts me in the privileged position of working with the children, staff, Parents and Governors to enable every child to be the best they can be. I have not always been a teacher, I began my career working with children under 5 and was employed over the years in both in educational and social services settings. After having a career break to start my family, I retrained as a teacher and went on to work in schools across Luton and Hertfordshire. I live in a small village in Bedfordshire with my husband and I have two grown up sons.

Mrs E Okoturo

After working with the London Underground for 12 years, I decided to go back to University to become a teacher. I completed my PGCE at the University of Hertfordshire in 2006 and to gain more experience, decided to supply for a year (2007) all over the county. I started at Hexton School as a teacher in 2008 to teach Years 3 and 4 and now currently teach all Key stage 2 children (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) which is a fulfilling and rewarding challenge. I live in Stevenage with my husband and two children. I believe in children and I love to always encourage them to do their best which will have an overall positive impact on their life for the future.

Ms M Webster

Recently appointed in 2015, I joined the board as a parent governor.  Both my children attend the school and we live locally in the village of Hexton. I have worked extensively with administrative and accountancy roles but more recently have ventured into the world of catering, having run my own cake business . I am now training as a chef.

My focus on the board of governors is leadership and management.

Mrs A Bishop

I have been a governor at Hexton School since 2011, when I was elected as parent governor. I started working in the school office in 2015, so I changed to being a co-opted governor. Almost 2 years ago now, I left the school and started working for Herts for Learning Ltd in the Governance Team, but I was keen to remain as a governor so that I wouldn’t lose contact with the school.

One of my link roles on the governing body is to look after Governor Training and Development. In this role I need to make sure that the governors have access to the training they need for their link roles, and that all the recommended training is completed and refreshed. I also help the governing body to recruit suitable people when we have vacancies.

As a governor I really enjoy visiting the school, meeting the children and hearing them talking about their learning. I also love to attend events at the school when I can. Hexton School is a very special place where myself and my family have always felt comfortable and welcome. I am looking forward to continuing to work with everybody involved with the school in the future.

Mr P Cooper

I live in Hexton and my children attended Hexton School (some years ago). I sit on the Resources committee and I have experience in looking after the school premises and dealing with the budget and expenditure.

Mr S Moore

My name is Steven Moore and I have recently become a governor at Hexton School. I live in North Hertfordshire and this is my first time as a school governor, although I have undertaken a number of voluntary roles previously.

Professionally I am a paramedic with the East of England Ambulance Service and currently manage a number of specialist teams across the region who are responsible for responding to patients who are either critically ill / injured or injured / unwell within a hazardous environment, such as at height or in a confined space.

I have two dogs and love taking them for long walks in the country side.

Ms A Marschini

Working in early years and primary education in inner London, Oxfordshire, and Hertfordshire, for many years as a class teacher and Forest School Leader, with an interest in teacher professionalism and development, has given me the experience to take on a governor role. My governor focus concerns teaching and learning, assessment and data.

Mr A Feerick

I have lived in Hexton for Thirty two years. My youngest daughter attended Hexton School many years ago. I was asked to join the Board of Governors at the beginning of 2017 and I hope to be able to make a contribution to the continuing success  of the school.
