Meet our governors
Nicola Chong - Foundation Governor, responsible for maths
I am currently a full time homemaker having previously worked in education for 10 years and as a dietician. I have two children at Cathedral School. I am committed to the goal of achieving the best possible all round educational experience for all pupils. I am also an active member of the Friends of School.
Mrs Jane Driscoll - Foundation Governor responsible for English.
I am a retired deputy headteacher. My first teaching post was in Cornwall where I taught in a Foundation Class. I was Literacy subject leader. I then moved to Plymouth and taught for a further twelve years. I am very interested in education and since retiring, I have volunteered in schools hearing reading, helping with group work and going on trips.
I am new to the role of governor and I hope to use my knowledge to help the school reach its aspirations for English.
Marguerite Sperring-Foundation Governor responsible for Health and Safety
My name is Marguerite Sperring and I am a Foundation Governor. I bring my skills as a trained and qualified HR specialist to support the School and Governing Body. I also bring my deep faith and desire for a safe environment for staff and pupils to support the School and Governing Body. I sit on the relevant committees where my skills can be best utilised (RE, Safeguarding and HR). I also visit the schools at various times (e.g. parent evenings) to be a face the pupils and parents recognise as that of a governor and hopefully one that is approachable.
I am proud to be involved with the Governing Body because I believe in both Schools and what they want to achieve. The passion for doing the best for the pupils and staff is evident in what is said and done and I want to be associated with people that have that passion.
