Governor Profiles


Hello I’m Graeme and I’m the Vice Chair of Governors at Woodlands, having been Chair for the last three years and a governor since 2016. I’m an economist and have applied economic and financial analysis working primarily for regulators for the past 20 years. I have lived in Tonbridge since 2010 and have two children, both of whom have enjoyed attending Woodlands Primary School. I enjoy running, and sometimes you may well see me pounding the streets of Tonbridge!


I’m Karen and I am a Class Teacher at Woodlands. Before my teaching career began I had worked as a graphic designer for 10 years. I always wanted to teach and finally pursued a teaching career in 2009, starting out as a teaching assistant with a view to retraining. I completed my teacher training in 2016 and was fortunate to secure a position as a class teacher. I have lived in Tonbridge all my life and have one child who, like myself, attended Woodlands. I enjoy football, tennis, reading and above all things the time I spend with my family.  

I'm Glenn, I joined Woodlands as a parent Governor in November 2019 and I’m amazed at how quickly my first year as a governor has passed. I have two children, and our family moved to Tonbridge in 2017. I was a pupil at Woodlands many years ago and having been educated here I am delighted to be able to return and support the school as a Governor.

I’m Alan and since I retired being a governor at Woodlands has given me the opportunity to get more involved with the local community. 

I am now co-chair of the governors and am also involved in managing the governor review and approval of the school policies. 

Since retirement you may see me sweating in the Angel Centre gym or in the stands at Longmead cheering Tonbridge Angels from the stands.
