About

Meet the Governors

Chair of Governors: Mrs Eleanor Langston-Jones

I have been in the teaching profession for twenty years, initially as a history teacher, but spent the last five years as my career as a senior manager with responsibility for teaching and learning. I am currently teaching two days a week in a sixth college as my husband and I adopted twin boys in December 2019. I have been a staff governor at two of my previous schools and became a governor at Marsh Hill in February 2020. I have greatly enjoyed being part of the governing body this year and look forward to continuing to work with staff, students, parents and the wider community in order to improve the life chances of the children in our care.

Staff Governor: Cathy Lomas

My name is Cathy Lomas, and I represent the 'Support the Staff' as part of the Governing Body at Marsh Hill Primary School. I believe education is the key to our children's success - it is an intrinsic part of every child's life and the route to their personal success.

As a governor I am part of a group of experienced members of your community who provide the strategic friendships to the school to ensure children are well looked after in every sense. I am also a parent and I love my children - they are the route of my madness but are also the reason I smile every day! My working background has predominantly been in health and welfare.

I began my working career at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital as a Nurse and for the last fifteen years I worked in schools for the NSPCC and then as Pastoral Manager at Marsh Hill.

Mr Paul Basil

I have had a long career in Management Accountancy and Business Advice offering support and guidance to businesses from all sectors. I joined Marsh Hill Primary School as a Governor in May 2019 to support the Board of Governors in setting a clear strategic direction and ensuring the resources are used well and appropriately. With my experience in the financial sector, I feel privileged to be able to offer my expertise to the Governing Board.
