The Governors

Governors' Business Interests

Vicky Powell

I have been a Church elected Governor since July 2015 and have recently taken on the role of 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.
Sarah Tilbrook
I have been a Church appointed governor at Ingrave Johnstone School since 2008 and have a son who attends the school. 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.


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 .

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.

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.
