Mrs J Holder. Chair of Governors.


I live in Lechlade and have recently retired as practice manager by a local firm of solicitors. I used to be a maths teacher and am still very interested in education. I enjoy having the opportunity to maintain links with Southrop School which gave so much to my three children. I spend as much of my spare time as possible with my lovely family and also enjoy walking, exploring new places, watching sport and reading.


Mr R Jones, Vice Chair of Governors.

My wife and I live in Southrop and have 3 children, all of whom have been through the school from start to finish. I'm an insolvency practitioner based in Cirencester. I've been a Governor since my first child started at the school.

Sending our children to Southrop School has been one of the best decisions we ever made; I never expected to see my children so keen to get to school in the morning that they would drag me down to queue up before the gate was opened!

When not tied to my desk at work and not being a Governor or Parish Councillor, I like to spend my time in junk shops and at car boots searching for antiques - the elusive "Ming vase" which will make my fortune. I'm still looking so clearly haven't found it yet!

Revd. A. Cinnamond.

I am the Vicar of Southrop and so also a Foundation Governor of the school.

Mrs L Hollis.

I am a retired teacher from the school and have been appointed by the church as a Foundation Governor.

Mrs V Lewis.

Mrs C Brickley.

Mrs K Benbow.

I am the Clerk to the Governors. I assist the Governors in their work by taking minutes of meetings, keeping papers relating to the work of the Governing Body and ensuring that everything is conducted in accordance with the terms of reference.
