Brill Church Of England School

With the Wind in our Sails

Governor: Nick Phipps

I joined the governing body in 2016. We have three children, our eldest (at the time of joining) in Year 3 and our twins at Windmill Pre-School.

I’ve worked in journalism for more than 20 years and am an Editor at Sky News, responsible for the evening output and major events including the 2015 and 2017 General Elections and the EU Referendum.

Since we moved to Brill, the School and the life around it has been a central focus point for us. The School is so welcoming and nurturing for children and my motivation for joining the governing body was to support the fantastic staff to keep it moving forwards, and to learn more about education ‘under the bonnet’.
