Our family has lived in Fleet over 30 years, both my wife and I were schooled in the area at different schools and now my youngest daughter attends EHPS. My eldest step daughter also attended EHPS.Ã ¿ ½ I have watched both girls thrive under the culture and guidance at the EHPS, the energy and friendliness I have experienced the staff share when teaching are key attributes to the continued success that children achieve when attending EHPS. What better school to get involved with and IÃ ¿ ½m really pleased to be able to use my skillset to support the school to ensure its continued success. I will enjoy working with the other governors and teachers to ensure all of EHPS students get the best possible education.
I was elected as an Associate Member of the Governing Body in November 2015, following a vacancy I then became a co-opted Governor in February 2016.
I have lived in Fleet since 1999 and my children have both been educated locally and are currently in 1st year at 6th Form College and the final year of a 4 year degree.
I am a qualified CIMAÃ ¿ ½Accountant with over 20 yearsÃ ¿ ½ experience working in various Blue Chip and SMEÃ ¿ ½s, I want to use my finance background to assist EHPS in keeping costs to a minimum, whilst ensuring the childrenÃ ¿ ½s education and schooling is the best in can be.
Over the last 3 years, I have been involved in reviewing and monitoring the finances from a governors point of view, last year I added sports and well-being Governor and this year will add SEN (Special Educational Needs) Governor to my roles.
By having various Ã ¿ ½jobsÃ ¿ ½ within the governing body, gives me a wider insight about different areas of the school and education.
I became a co-opted governor of EHPS in April 2019. I have lived on the heath since 2015. I have always had an interest in education Ã ¿ ½ although my career took me down a different path Ã ¿ ½ so I thought becoming a governor at my local school would be a great thing to do, allowing me to contribute to make this already excellent school the best it can be.
Originally from Kent, I have been a Whitehall civil servant for the duration of my career, mostly working for the Home Office. Ã ¿ ½I have been fortunate to work in a range of fascinating policy areas, learning skills which will be essential for my role as a governor.
Most of my spare time is spent with my 2 young children. I hope both will join EHPS when old enough to do so

Carly ScholesI became a governor of EHPS in September 2019, having moved to Elvetham Heath earlier in the year. Most of my career has been in corporate/advisory roles - insolvency and restructuring for five years, and now HR/people consulting. However, I have always recognised the importance of education, and have worked in a school (as a cover supervisor), a university, and an education charity (Teach First). As well as this I have recently completed a part-time master's degree in psychology which included some educational psychology.Ã ¿ ½ Ã ¿ ½Becoming a school governor will allow me to remain connected to education and use my skills/knowledge to make a contribution to the local community. I am really looking forward to learning more about the school and the different aspects of the governor role.
I joined the Governing Body in May 2019 as a Co-opted Governor. I have a child in preschool and two stepchildren in Y5 at Elvetham Heath and in Y8 at Calthorpe Park respectively.Ã ¿ ½ I am motivated by the prospect of playing an active role in helping build the future success and growth story of an excellent local school. At work I am communications director at a learning company that provides educational content, assessment and services across the UK, US, and in other international markets.Ã ¿ ½
Ã ¿ ½
This is my second year at Elvetham Heath and I am theÃ ¿ ½Year Group LeadÃ ¿ ½in Year R. My role as staff governor is toÃ ¿ ½form a bridge between the pupilÃ ¿ ½s voice, staff's voice andÃ ¿ ½the school governors. I enjoy taking an active role in the wider school community and sharingÃ ¿ ½the school's successes.
