the governing body: Who Are We?

The Governors are from a diverse set of backgrounds and experiences ensuring the school can benefit from a wide range of views. There are five types of Governor on the St Anne's Governing Body:

  • Headteacher
  • Ex-Officio – i.e. the Vicar
  • Foundation – Appointed by and representative of Chester Diocese
  • Local Authority – Appointed by and representative of the Local Authority
  • Parents – Elected by and representative of the Parents
  • Staff – Appointed by and representative of the Staff 


It's important to note that whilst the Parent Governors are elected by the parents of St Anne’s, they are not like an MP or Councillor in that they are there to take up issues raised by parents. They are there to provide a parent's perspective.

Foundation Governors

Chair of Governors - Bev Hobson

Hello my name is Bev Hobson, currently the Chair of Governors at St. Anne’s C of E school. I am very proud to have been associated with the school since 1992 when my eldest child started in reception. I was involved in the Parents association for many years and became a parent governor in 2001 and then a Foundation Governor when my youngest daughter left St. Anne’s. I have 3 adult children and a granddaughter. I attend Sunday worship, when work commitments allows, and try to support both the school and the church at fund raising events. I work full time as a nurse manager in intensive care. I come in to school at least three times each half term to meet with Mrs Goodson along side attending meetings and Governor training. I love the outdoors and spending time with family and friends.




LA Governor

My name is Will Jones.  I have previously been a governor at Manor High School in Sale (now Manor Academy) between 2011 and 2016. Where I served as Chair of Governors between 2013 and 2015. During this period the senior management team and governing body guided the school to academy status as a multi-trust academy. I also gained governor experience across committees particularly in personnel and finance.

I currently work as a home-based Software architect for the DXC Technology corporation working health systems, primarily for the NHS. I have a very strong IT background that can be utilised on committees to improve processes at St Anne’s. I live locally in Timperley were have lived for 3 years having previously lived in Sale for 13 years previously.

I am very active as a volunteer with various groups in Timperley and Sale including the Sale Wombles who are a volunteer litter pick group that I jointly established with several other volunteers in 2012. Other groups I am involved with are Friends of Pickering Lodge Park, Timperley Country Fair and Altrincham Festival.

I hope to use my experience to help St Anne’s achieve its ambitions and goals in the coming years.


Associate governor

My name is Anna Bond. I have been an associate governor for just over 12 months. I have 2 children, both now at St Anne’s and I have very much enjoyed being part of the school community with them since 2016. I have been particularly inspired by the leadership that Mrs Goodson has brought to the school and for that reason I have volunteered to be on the Governing body.

For my ‘day job’ I am a strategic manager for the Environment Agency, my role is to work with partners across Lancashire to deliver DEFRAs vision for the environment- to leave a better environment for the next generation. As part of my role I carry out strategic planning, continuous improvement, chair meetings and have an incident role to protect people and properties during flood events.

On a personal note I am passionate about my local community and the people within it. I set up and chair a local community group; We are Sale Moor in 2015. I sit on Trafford Health Advisory Board and have an active role in supporting 14th Sale Beaver Group. As part of this local network I bring a range of skills and relationships which I hope can benefit the school and the governing body.

I am currently involved in two working groups the Teaching and Learning Committee and the Leadership and Management group where I have supported the development of the Governor Action Plan
