Profile
Lyndsay Markham9/90/0

It’s a privilege to be involved in the life of our wonderful school, as I believe that an outstanding education within a nurturing school is one of the most important foundations our children can have. I was fortunate to attend good state schools myself, before completing a history degree at Cambridge and later gaining an MA at Bristol.

I work in corporate communications as a freelance consultant and editor, as well as copy-editing books for an academic publisher. I’m also an assessor for the Institute of Internal Communication’s professional diploma, and I sat on the executive boards of the Institute and its European counterpart for 12 years.

Nina Walker9/9N/A

I was born in North London, but brought up in Haworth in Yorkshire. Moving to the Midlands in my early 20’s where I was a management accountant and brought up a family. After I qualified as a teacher in my early 40’s we moved to live near Ely in Cambridgeshire, where I taught and lead in a range of schools, including as Headteacher of another Church school for the Diocese of Ely Multi Academy Trust.

I have been a Headteacher for 8 years and had a range of Leadership roles in both Primary and Secondary schools.

I still see myself as a teacher first and am always eager to be back in the classroom, but I am fortunate as a Headteacher that my passion for education allows me to support others in providing high quality education and care to all members of our school community and beyond.

Rachel Clark9/90/0I grew up in Taunton and went to university in Birmingham before I moved back to the West Country.  I have been teaching for over 20 years and have worked in 3 different church schools - the first was in Glastonbury, the second on the outskirts of Taunton and now St Georges.  I was a governor at my previous school and really enjoyed the role so was very pleased to be nominated staff governor by the other members of staff in 2013 I was re-elected in 2017 and look forward to continuing in the role until 23/09/2021
Angela Hoare7/90/0I am a Methodist minister covering the Weston-super-Mare area, and I am happy to support the Christian foundation of this school.  I enjoy coming into school, meeting the children and leading worship.  I was previously a qualified teacher in a secondary school for nine years and have three children and four grandchildren.  I am the Pupil Premium and SEND governor and do all I can to support this vital area of work within the school.
Susan Jordan9/9N/AI am a qualified teacher and have taught in a variety of settings and have experience at senior level in primary schools, especially in church schools. Following retirement I qualified as a Gwella (Welsh) Church School Inspector, carrying out inspections for over three years. I am an Associate Advisor for Bath & Wells Diocese and a SIAMS church school inspector. This is my second term of office at St Georges Church School and Nursery.

Alexandra Webb

3/30/0I have been a parent at St Georges for two years with a son in Year Five and a daughter in nursery. Having been a primary teacher for the best part of sixteen years, I am hugely passionate about children’s learning. I genuinely believe it is the best and most varied job there is; life is never boring in a primary school! My own interests include dance and reading as well as long walks in the countryside! I can offer the Governing Body experience in primary maths, support of the faith of the school and a passion for learning. 
Grace Rubery2/5N/AI was a teacher for thirty years working in primary schools in London and Essex and in secondary schools in Bristol and Somerset. I was also a hospital teacher and a project manager for the YTS working with children from Social Services and Probation. I feel that I have the experience and knowledge to make a contribution as a governor. I work to uphold and share the values of my Christian faith. Since becoming a Reader in 2000 I have been taking assemblies in local schools. 
Jason Mitchell9/90/0I have had continuous involvement with the school since 2011 by way of my children attending, and am well known to many of the teachers and staff. I have always endeavoured to attend and support all activities and events as often as possible and take an active interest in the school, its management and its place within the community. I look to increase this level of involvement to further support the school and further enhance its ability to offer excellent and happy learning environments to others such as it has afforded my own children.
