Governor Role Pen Portrait
Philip Baylis Foundation (Chair)

I have now been the Chair of the Governors of the school for almost 1 year and have been a governor involved with the school for over 4 years. I have been thoroughly enjoying the journey that the school is on.

 My background has been in construction industry for all of my career. I have worked and lived in many countries in the Middle East, Africa and the Far East as well as the UK. I have also spent over 15 years lecturing and running MBA modules for business schools in the UK and also the Far East, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

 I am now retired and keen to give back into society and schools some of my experiences.
Rev. Angie Smith Foundation (Vicar)

I've been a governor since September 2018 and have really enjoyed getting to know the lovely community at DPS since then. I was born in Hampshire but spent some of my childhood in East Africa eventually coming back to school in Winchester. I trained as an Architect and practiced in Devon and for HCC for 16 years before God asked me to serve him as a vicar! I was ordained in 2014 and came to be vicar in Hartley Wintney, Winchfield and Dogmersfield in 2017. I'm married to Vince, have 2 grown up children and a cheeky little dog called Finn. I love country walks, growing things in my garden, creating things with my hands and by being surprised by God! 

Susan Cooper Foundation

I have lived in Hartley Wintney for nearly 36 years, and we have raised our two sons in the village. I have been involved in many village organisations during this time and have loved living in such a wonderful community. I am a member of St John’s Church in Hartley Wintney and have been involved with the Bumps & Babies group for 10 years, leading it for the last 3 years.

 

My career was as an Early Years and Key Stage 1 teacher which I loved, and my job grew as my children grew, so I was very blessed. I am passionate about children and families and have really enjoyed my time as a governor at DPS. I started as a governor in 2018 and have just committed to another 4 years. I look forward to seeing this wonderful school progress under Mrs. Nicholass' leadership.
Claire Collins Foundation

I have lived in Hartley Wintney for 11 years and love the area.

I worked for many years as a children’s nurse and would like to continue to be involved with children’s development in some way. I believe every child deserves equal opportunities and should be encouraged to reach their full potential.

I am married to John, sadly we were unable to have children but we have 2 gorgeous dogs - Ollie and Milo.

I help out with Bumps and Babies, a mother & baby toddler group at St John’s Church, am a volunteer befriender, I enjoy art and go to art classes, love reading and am a member of a local book club and enjoy walking, Hart Outfitters boot camp and long-distance cycling!
Jo-Anne Vance Parent

As a mum of one boy who attends Dogmersfield Primary School, I am passionate about creating opportunity for children in the area to receive excellent educational, pastoral and wrap around care. I hope to make sure school life gives them great memories, long lasting friendships and the best chance of success as an adult, including a healthy mind-set. I am a qualified Accountant currently working as a Finance manager in the corporate travel market. My work entails financial planning and analysis for the Technology function and Business partnering with the many project leaders and executives. I am keen to extend the skills I have gained from my working life into being a great parent governor.
