Prior Weston has a strong Governing Body made up of teachers, parents, LA (Local Authority) representatives and members of the local community.
I have had the chance to be a parent of Prior Weston since 2008 and a governor since 2018.
My eldest boys transitioned to local state secondary schools very well prepared (Central Foundation Boys School, and then Camden School for Girls for A-level).
I have been working full time in the financial industry and volunteered in the school many events throughout the years. Like my children, I have met some of my closest friends through Prior Weston and I am keen to nurture this vibrant community.
I care as much about our children academic progress, as about their social, artistic and physical development. Above all, I wish all kids to become curious, independent learners, critical thinkers and to have the happiest time at Prior Weston.
Tom Bishai became a governor of Prior Weston in 2018 and sits on the Finance and Community Engagement committees.
Tom is a solicitor and works for Heathrow Airport as Senior Finance Counsel. Prior to joining Heathrow, Tom was a senior associate with CMS Cameron McKenna specialising in infrastructure and spent 9 years working at their offices in the City of London and in Romania.
Tom values the importance of a good and rounded education in positive life outcomes for children.
William Pimlott is a PhD Student at UCL studying Immigration and British Jewish History - he has recently returned from study semesters at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and at Yale University in the US. He had the honour and delight of attending Prior Weston from 1997-2003, and is excited to give back now in his role as a co-opted member (William represents the ward of Cripplegate as a Labour Common Councilman in the City of London - this is where he grew up).
William wants to work to help a school that gave him an unparalleled education by focussing on the elements of Prior Weston that have always made it special: its unique traditions such as "the Happening" and its focus on pupils' creative and social development, as well as their academic achievement.
The Governors Composition List includes details of our Governors terms of office, the committees they sit on and type of Governors that they are.
Parent governors are elected by parents, Co-opted Governors, elected by the board members and LA Governor are appointed by the LA.
