The Governors

Governors' Business Interests

Sarah Tilbrook
I have been a church appointed governor at Ingrave Johnstone School since 2008 and have a son who attends the school. I was appointed Chair of Governors In 2017. I am committed to ensuring that children receive an outstanding education within a Christian environment and bring many years of management and analysis experience to my role as a governor.

Vicky Powell

I have been a Church elected Governor since July 2015 and have recently taken on the role of Vice Chair. I became a Governor at Ingrave Johnstone as I am committed to the school’s Christian ethos and believe that all children deserve an outstanding education with a broad curriculum in a caring, nurturing environment. I have a son and daughter in Key Stage 2. I work for a Professional Services Firm based in the City as Manager of Operations overseeing HR, Recruitment, Marketing and Technical Support. I believe my extensive Administrative experience lends support to the governors and the school.

Richard Horton
I was appointed to the Governing Body in 1999 as a Diocesan Governor. My children and now my grandchildren attend the school. I have been Chair of Governors since 2012. As Chair I try and utilize the various talents of my fellow Governors for the benefit of the School. I sit on all the committees at the school. I was also appointed a Governor at a senior school in Brentwood for over 10 years. My career has been spent in local government in London from which I retired in 1997 as an Assistant Director.
Paul Hamilton
I’ve been Rector of Ingrave since 2006 and membership of the governing body is an important part of that role.  Each of my 3 children have attended this school and I am passionate about playing my part to maintain its Christian ethos.
I’ve been in full time ministry since 1993 and have always served on governing bodies during that time.  I teach RE each week in the school as well as leading numerous acts of worship.  As the parish priest I make time to be available to staff and parents and support in any way I can.
Judy Dye
I was appointed as the Local Authority Governor in May 2013. Most of my working career has been spent with computers, firstly as a research chemist, then as a programmer, on to a project manager and now I work as an IT specialist in Local Government.  I feel privileged to be involved with such a happy and successful school and hope to be able to bring some of my skillset to use in supporting the school going forward into a new era, particularly in the safe and secure use of IT to support learning .

Wendy Hoad

I have been involved with St Nicholas Church since 2007 and I was invited to be a Diocese appointed Governor in 2014.  I attend the Church / School Liaison Meetings and am the Parents Association Link Governor.  I have three sons, my eldest started at Ingrave Johnstone in 2013.  My earlier career was in legal work, with a career change in 2005 when I moved into the world of pensions.  

Ann Howell-Ives
I was appointed staff governor during early 2014. My three children were pupils at the school and I have been involved in a variety of ways since 1996. Prior to being a full time mother I worked in the finance sector. I value education in its broadest sense and I am confident Ingrave Johnstone School is well positioned to continually achieve high standards within our caring Christian environment.

Mark Tubby

I have been a member of St Nicholas Church since moving to the area in 2007, I have been a church appointed governor since 2015 and have 1 son currently attending Ingrave Johnstone School and another son who has recently left. As well as supporting the school to maintain its Christian ethos and high standard of education I can offer many years of management skills as well as help create a relationship for the children with British Farming from field to fork through my knowledge of Agriculture.

Madeleine Knight

I was appointed as parent governor in July 2015.  My two daughters attend the school. My working background is in teaching; my last post was an Assistant Headteacher in a large secondary school in East London.  I currently work in the education department for Essex County Council in a consultancy role.  I became a governor, as I hope that my skills and experience in education will enable me to support the governing body and the leadership team in their pursuit of the highest standards.

Kim Elwell-Sutton

I have two boys, the elder of whom started at the school in 2016. I became a Diocesan appointed governor in 2017 and am excited about being involved in supporting our school. I believe it is important that children be nurtured to achieve their academic and personal potential within a supportive environment. I also believe it is important they are given the opportunity to understand the love of God and the values of Christianity. Before becoming a Mum, I was a teacher both in the U.K. and in international schools in Hong Kong. I hope I can bring some of this experience to contribute to the life of Ingrave Johnstone.
