Governor Profiles


Bridget Holland


Chair of Governors

I have been working in schools as a governor for 18 years.  For the last 13 years I have been Chair of Governors.  During this time I have been a member of the Governors Leadership Group in Peterborough and have built a skill set that has enabled me to become a member of two IEBs locally.  I have also mentored three Chairs of Governors who were new to the role and were experiencing difficulties.

In my time as a governor, I have worked with two Principals and have successfully led a governing body through an appointment process.  I have also worked with the school Senior Leadership Team to successfully take a school from RI to Good.

Rachel Garner

I attended The Deepings School as a student and would like to 'give back' to the school by offering support to both the school and Governing Body.

I am an Independent Financial Adviser.  I have industry qualifications and 30 years experience in this sector which I feel is beneficial to this role.

I have run my own business for 14 years, so I feel I can offer numerous qualities; we employ staff, deal with all aspects of HR, management etc.  In addition, in the day to day running of the company, I have experience of problem solving, planning, setting tasks etc.


Sharon Green

I am married and live locally with two sons at the school which prompted me to join the Governing Body in 2013.

I currently work for the University of Lincoln; I started as a Lecturer in Food Manufacture in 2003 after 15 years of management experience in the food manufacturing and agri-food industries. In my current role as Head of Skills and Employer Engagement, I lead employer support for the Holbeach campus’s range of programmes whilst managing the short course, and apprenticeship based provision, I also lead partner relations with the University Academy Holbeach. Being a member of the Governing Body enables me to share my knowledge and experience whilst providing a direct link into the University. 


Mark Haggett-King

I have worked at a senior level for multi-national companies around the world.  I have managed my own Business Development consultancy for fourteen years.

In the educational areas, I have twice worked as a camp counsellor for children in the USA.  However, it is my business background which helps find solutions, overcome hurdles and project management which I hope will add additional resource to the school.


Rev Michael Howard

I’ve been closely involved in Education for many years as a teacher, a deputy Head and a Headteacher.  I taught at the Deepings school for many years and my children attended the school, as will, all being well, my grandchildren.  I’m currently in ministry locally as a priest in the Church of England following my retirement from paid work.

My academic background is in Economics and Information Technology (and latterly theology).  I also have professional post graduate qualifications in both education and education management.

I am keenly interested that all children are equipped and encouraged to achieve to the highest standard.  I’d like to see more of our brighter students targeted at Oxbridge entrance and every child achieving good GCSE passes.  I’m also keen to ensure that our children’s experience of education is positive and promotes ambition as well as developing good citizenship.


Tim Hutton

My experience both through my career and as a volunteer have given me the skills required to be successful in this role.  I was a Teacher Governor of a secondary school for 10 years and have been a parent Governor for the last 7 years (5 as Chair of Governors).  These roles have given me an understanding of all aspects of governance including finance and curriculum.  My career as a teacher and senior leader in secondary and further education gave me vast experience of school improvement process and of the Ofsted inspection regime.  It further allowed me to exercise my ability to self-evaluate and strategically plan.

Helen Morgan

I have an interest in education and have two children who attend the school. I have a desire to support the school and to benefit the wider community.

I was branch secretary and events coordinator at a local CIPS branch and have lectured in CIPS at Peterborough Technical College.  I have helped with literacy support at William Hildyard school for 5 years.  I am an active campaigner for the community library and organised the first Deepings Literary festival.

Fiona Litman

I have the unique perspective of being a parent of the school and also a staff member. It is important that support staff are represented within the Governing Body. I am interested in seeing how the school will improve.

I am a good communicator, able to speak to people on all levels.I have a knowledge of the school procedures and policies, but also a good knowledge of children legislation.  I am involved in the school community.  This year I am the Musical Director for the school musical.


Rachael Smith

I am organised, confident and always happy to help. I like to think that I am a kind and caring person and pride myself on being supportive to others around me and enjoy sharing my knowledge.  I am senstive and diplomatic in my approach to solving problems and dealing with issues.

I am the Office Manager for a local specialist Construction Company. I am responsible for all finance and accounts, including management accounts and reporting to the MD.  I deal with HR issues, staff recruitment, disciplinary matters, procurement and day to day running of the Company.


James Storr

I joined the governing body as a parent governor in 2010 and I currently chair the resources committee. I have two daughters who attend the school and are in Years 11 and 8.  I work as an educational specialist in commercial banking and try to use this knowledge to support the school and senior leadership team in making informed financial decisions and achieving best value.  I have found being a governor a very rewarding role. I look forward to continuing to work with the outstanding leadership team and my fellow governors in ensuring all students at the school have the opportunity to achieve their potential in the right environment.
