Mrs Kate Bartlett - Chair of the Marketing, Promotion & Media Working Group
I started my role as a governor in June 2016 and am delighted to have the opportunity to support
my local school. I have over 15 years’ experience within the Higher Education sector working with
university students, academics, the local community and national governing bodies.
My experience in Higher Education is based around Student Recruitment and Widening
Participation. I have managed large scale projects including residential summer schools, taster
days, challenge days, large scale conferences, and volunteering and mentoring programmes. I was
formerly a mentor for the universities’ career service and personal academic tutor for the Faculty of
Medicine at the University of Southampton.
I am currently working on the outreach project Life Lab at Southampton General Hospital. This project is based around healthy eating and life style and I am the lead in attainment.
Being a governor I feel I can give my expertise and experience in inspiring young people to see the benefits education can give from an early age, and work with them and their parents to enhance their understanding of continuing in education.
I am mother to two small children and have lived in the village for 5 years. I am a keen gym
competitor and enjoy amateur dramatics and craft work.
I am an Appointed Governor appointed by the members of the Academy Trust and my term ends on
5 June 2020.
I am a member of the Pupil Discipline, Curriculum & Early Years Committee, of which I am Vice Chair, and I am Chair of the Marketing, Promotion & Media Working Group.
In addition, I have a responsibility for Looked after Children, Pupil Premium, Most Able and Talented Children and Special Educational Needs.
Pecuniary and other interests: I have a child who attends the Academy.
First appointed as a Governor: June 2016
