Mrs Adele Lee  

Adele has worked in education for 14 years.  She became part of St Johns Middle School in 2012 and welcomed the opportunity to become more involved in school life as a Governor, which meant being included in making decisions that could affect the future of the children who are at St Johns. She says staff are easy to work with and they all have a very caring and committed ethos.

Mr Anthony James  

I have been involved in education throughout my career starting as a teacher and ending up as a headteacher in a number of different schools. I now work as an educational consultant supporting schools and their leaders across the UK and sometimes internationally. Both my sons were students at St John's a number of years ago and enjoyed their time here going on to be successful in their chosen careers. I feel that as an ‘ex’ parent and an educationalist I have a foot in both camps and hopefully have been able to bring that experience to the governing body.

Mr Lee Wallace 

I have been in insurance since leaving education and I currently work as a Senior Account manager at insurance Broker T H March & Co Ltd where I have worked since 1998.  I am also the chairman of the Association of Insurance Surveyors Ltd and a committee member of Midland Security & Risk Society having formally been Chairman there also.

I have 4 children, all boys, two currently at St Johns and 1 to join in 2019.

I feel that a good school nurtures and encourages the aspirations of children and that the socio-economic background of children should not have any bearing on what all children can potentially achieve.  Learning and development through enthusiastic teachers who have support from leadership and colleagues working together to achieve the common goal.  Also as a keen sportsman I think sport and other non academic activities such as the arts should be encouraged and supported both within the Curriculum and also beyond both in school and local clubs to help develop well rounded individuals.
