Lesley Powell

I lived in Warsash with my husband and son for 8 years before moving to Locks Heath; my son attended Hook with Warsash before advancing to secondary school and University. Currently I work for Hampshire Cricket.


I previously worked for Sainsburys Supermarkets Limited in various roles for 38 years; predominantly in Training and Development and Public Relations. Enjoyed working in radio and with the press; I once appeared in an advert on supermarket walls nationwide. Along with a friend of mine, set up 1st Sarisbury Cub pack and assisted in the running the pack for approximately 3 years.


I have a love of baking and was fortunate to be in the last 200 when I applied for the Great British Bake Off in 2010. I love to travel – especially European cities and Canada.


I previously served on the governing body as Chair and Vice Chair of the Curriculum Committee and as Chair of Governors for approximately 2 years with additional responsibilities for child protection and exclusion. I was therefore delighted to be reappointed in 2020.


I am an Appointed Governor, appointed by the Members of the Academy Trust, with my term beginning on 25 March 2020 and ending on 24 March 2024.


I am a member of the Sites & Buildings Committee


Pecuniary and other interests: None
