Our School Governors

Mrs Cartwright

I have lived in Cholderton for over thirty years. My commitment to Newton Tony School comes from a long association with it: my children all attended the school, I taught here for a while and my husband was a governor. I feel that local community is important, so I volunteer for the Link Scheme, I am on the Cholderton Village Hall committee and I run the Valley Book Group.

I love spending time with my family, especially my five grandchildren (soon to be six). My main hobby is quilting. I spend hours at my sewing machine. I also enjoy badminton, swimming, walking and reading.

 

Mrs Kerry

I’ve been a parent governor since late 2016. My son really enjoys his time at Newton Tony school and as a governor and member of the management committee, I’m really pleased to be able to support the school to develop and run as effectively as possible. Having attended the same school myself (many years ago!), it’s great to see it continuing to thrive.   I work as a content designer, designing government services for citizens, so I’m keen to use these skills to ensure the school is doing the best it can to meet the needs of all its users. After my degree in biomedical sciences I spent a few years working in science before moving into communications and web design.  If any other parents are interested in joining our governing body, please feel free to have a chat with me to find out more.

Counsellor Smale

I have lived in the area for 14 years after a  full career in the Army (Royal Engineers) followed by 11 years with MOD as a civil servant.  I am a family man with a wife and two daughters.  My interests are golf, gardening and walking my dogs.  At present I am a Unitary Councillor for Wiltshire County  and a Parish Councillor for NewtonTony.
