Dr Susana Carvalho, Chair of Trinity LGB
I am a proud mum of three high achievers’ daughters that work hard and have found the proper support and challenge first at Speenhamland School and then at Trinity School. One has now graduated in Chemistry, the middle one is an undergrad in English Literature, and the youngest is thriving in Trinity.
Mrs Heidi Bird

I also have strong links with schools, organisations and charities across West Berkshire.
Mr Wil Johnson
I am a Detective Sergeant in Complex Investigations in the Thames Valley. Having started my career as an Engineer, a change of direction seventeen years ago to Policing meant a return to training school and exams. My last course was a vocational foundation degree in complex investigations. My role within the public sector ensuring deadlines and performance standards are met can also involve child protection matters. In addition, I am a member of the rewards and recognition panel that acknowledges the efforts of not only Police but members of the public. As well as being a Father of a child at secondary school, my profession and prior experience as a Foster Carer has given me an in-depth understanding of the very real issues children of today face. I believe that education is vital in empowering children, and young adults, to believe in themselves and inspiring them to strive and achieve their very best. Education provides essential opportunities for all children to thrive, unlock their potential, discover their dreams and furthermore attain them. Every child really does matter and to develop a love of lifelong learning is invaluable!
Mrs Mary Tebble
I am honoured to be a Staff Governor at Trinity School, where I have worked for over 6 years. I have lived in the Newbury area my whole life having attended Shaw House School in the I980s, it is lovely to be back working here. I currently live in Thatcham with my husband and children who both attend Trinity. I have been a teacher for over 10 years, previously working at Edgbarrow School in Crowthorne as Assistant Headteacher for Sixth Form. My focus has always been Business Studies and developing a real enthusiasm for the subject and the world of work. My previous career has been largely spent in the telecommunications sector and for a number of years working in Channel and Product Marketing at Vodafone. This experience was amazing and something that has enabled me to bring my teaching of business and marketing to life. I am very interested working as a Staff Governor to oversee the school plans to help our students achieve the very best in terms of progress and achievement as well as develop into decent, kind, hardworking individuals.
