I have been on many governing bodies over the past 20 years in different roles.

Staff Governor

Name

Louise French

Governor Experience

This is my first role as a school governor and I am proud to be part of such an enthusiastic and driven board of governors.  It is an exciting time for Woodlands Academy and I am thrilled to play a role as both teacher and governor to help steer the already rapid progression of the school into the future.

Career

Leaving school at 18, I completed an accountancy apprenticeship before becoming a finance officer for Sure Start.  Circumstances somehow then found me as an Estate Agent and Lettings Manager until serious illness while pregnant prompted me to re-evaluate my career choices.  I took time out to be a stay-at-home mum while teaching myself A-level sociology and going on to gain a first class honours degree in Education Studies and Special Educational Needs and Inclusion.  Completion of a PGCE in 2014 allowed me to become a primary school teacher which had always been a childhood dream.  I have now been at Woodlands Academy for two years and I absolutely love it.
