Mr Robert Knight

Chair of Governors / Co-opted Governor

I only ever wanted to be teacher and was privileged to spend 34 years working in schools.  My experience was as an English teacher, subject leader and then senior leader in secondary schools; I spent 13 years as a Headteacher.  Since retiring from the classroom, I have worked as a leadership coach, mainly in primary schools and have also supported Governing Bodies in becoming more effective in their work.  I am passionate about the importance of education in giving all young people the very best start in life.  As a Governor at this exciting time in the school’s development, I will do all I can to ensure that everything it does helps all children to fulfil their potential.

Mrs Clare Warburton

Parent Governor

Clare Warburton is an active parent of two children at Ash Green.  Having worked within the education and sports sector for over 20 years, previously as a Physical Educator, Clare is keen to bring some of this knowledge to the Governing Body of Ash Green.  Clare has worked for her current employer for the Youth Sport Trust for the past 14 years in a national role for a sports charity that believes in the power of PE and sport in building a brighter future for young people.  In this time with the Youth Sport Trust Clare has been heavily involved in education and is involved with Schools across the country in supporting the delivery of the Governments strategy for PE and School Sport.  Clare is also involved at Trentham Pre-School in Hanford as Vice Chair of the Governing Body as well as the Treasurer for Ash Green’s Parent and Teacher Association (PTA).  Clare is committed to playing an active role in the school as a co-opted Governor to support the Teachers and Senior Leadership Team to help the school flourish.   Clare is most importantly looking forward to helping the young people of the school to be happy and confident learners, enriching their experiences and creating lifelong memories.
