Amy Wells BA (Hons) QTS NPQH -Headteacher - Specialist Leader in Education (Mathematics)  

Headteacher - Staff Governor
I was born in Surrey and have lived within 10 miles of Ravenscote my whole life - apart from when I studied at Canterbury Christ Church University in Kent for 3 years. Outside of education, my passions include skiing, football and cheerleading. I knew I wanted to be a teacher from the age of 14 when I carried out my first work experience in the primary school that I had once attended. Straight out of school at 18, I chose to study Primary Education with a specialism in Mathematics (a subject I am particularly enthusiastic about). Upon completing my degree in 2010 and achieving QTS,  I applied to teach at Ravenscote as a newly qualified teacher and have valued teaching here ever since. I love being a part of the Ravenscote community and am passionate to continue raising the standards of education for our children. Being a Governor adds an additional dimension for me to continue to have impact on the effective teaching of our pupils.

Trust Governor

Being an Army child, I don’t particularly hail from anywhere and spent my childhood moving between Germany and the UK. I studied Agriculture & Animal/Equine Sciences at Writtle Agricultural College in Essex and although I tried a myriad of different careers (gardening, riding instructor, grave digger…!) it was only ever the Army for me. I commissioned from Sandhurst in 1998 into the Royal Logistic Corps. I have been privileged to have had an amazing, diverse and challenging career which has taken me around the world including operational tours to the Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Iraq and the Falkland Islands. My most rewarding roles have been in the training environment, particularly working with young soldiers. I have had considerable experience dealing with vulnerable young adults with significant educational challenges, hence my passion for education.

In my spare time I teach horse riding to children at Sandhurst and I am an adult instructor for the Sandhurst and District Corps of Drums (a civilian youth band). I have two young boys, both of whom have had educational challenges. Being a Governor is my way of paying back the amazing work the schools and the teachers do for our children.

David Holloway

Trust Governor

I was born in Reading but spent most of my childhood in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.  Growing up, my mum taught in the local primary school and education was a big part of family life. 

After studying engineering at the University of Birmingham (where I was also lucky enough to meet my wife), I trained as a chartered accountant.  I moved to Camberley in 2005, and my wife and I bought our current house in Frimley in 2012.  I work within the finance team at BMW Group (now based in Farnborough); between 2014 and 2018 I took a job at BMW in Munich and we made the decision as a family to relocate to Germany with our two young boys.

We returned back to the UK in summer 2018. Having experienced the education system in Germany, I am keen to be involved in our children's education in the UK and am passionate about supporting our local school.  My accountancy background means that I am the lead governor for business & finance topics.

Staff Governor
SEND Governor
I have lived in the local area most of my life and attended local schools throughout my childhood. Once finishing college, I completed my Bsc degree in Psychology, focusing on Child Psychology.  After graduating I became a family support worker within a pupil referral unit, supporting the needs of children and families within Surrey. In 2014 I became the child protection officer and head of Pastoral support within a local Pupil referral unit. During this time, I found my love for Primary education and in 2017 I completed my PGCE in Primary Education. After completing my qualification, I started work at Ravenscote. I absolutely love working in such a wonderful community! I joined the Governing Body in January 2022 to enable me to have a greater impact on the education of our pupils.

Safeguarding Governor

I was born in Ruislip, moved to Frimley in 2001 and am a married mum of two boys.  I work as an Executive Assistant to the Chief People Officer and Vice President, Global Total Rewards at LGC, an international life sciences measurement and testing company, providing solutions for the food, beverage, environmental, clinical, consumer safety, forensic and petroleum sectors.  

Both my children have attended Ravenscote School, and my youngest is currently in Year 5.  Since being a parent at this school, I have thoroughly enjoyed helping and supporting the school at the various PTA organised events; I can always be relied upon to lend a hand if required!

I was delighted to be appointed as a Trust Governor in 2017 with responsibility for Child Protection and Safeguarding, and see the role as an opportunity to be part of a team that collectively have an immense impact on our children’s lives.  I believe, that with the help, support and commitment from our fellow Governors, this will ensure that the school will continue to “Engage, Enrich and Excel”, and maintain its outstanding reputation within the community it serves.

Parent Governor

Chair of Governors

Although I was born in Frimley, I have lived all over the South of England, returning to Camberley a few years before my first child was born. 

I started my career in restaurant management, but have worked within Human Resources since 2004 and launched my own local HR consultancy business in 2016 which has given me the perfect work-life balance. I studied for my professional qualifications at Farnborough College of Technology, and I am a Chartered member of the CIPD.

My eldest was a pupil at Ravenscote until 2018, I hope my youngest two will follow in her footsteps and I have a keen interest in securing a positive experience for them all. We have had a wonderful journey through primary education in the area so far, and I am honoured to be a part of ensuring that this continues. 

My whole family have thoroughly enjoyed all of our experience of Ravenscote to date, and I am continuously learning more about how the school operates from the inside, whilst helping to maintain the high standards for which it has become renowned.

Trust Governor

Vice Chair

I am delighted to be a trust governor at Ravenscote Junior School and offer my skills to such a well renowned and excelling school.

To be able to help in education is a real privilege.  Children are a very important part of society, so the environment in which they learn is key.

I run my own business. My job requires me to apply strict regulations but also pragmatism and logic to everything I do for my clients and teams.

Through this I have learnt that being organised and efficient is key.

However, relationships, awareness of our surroundings and the environment in which we work and play are equally important.

I grew up in Leicester and have lived in Frimley for over 14 years.  I studied at the University of Surrey for my BSC Hons in Chemistry and Management and MSC in Environmental Strategy.

I am married, have two girls, and we enjoy spending time as a family.  In my spare time I enjoy cooking, baking, shopping, travelling and meeting new people through work and social settings.

beth weller 

Trust Governor

I grew up outside of Chicago and moved around a lot as a child and young adult. Education has always been important to me and therefore a part of my life. I went to university in the USA but came to England to study for a term at Royal Holloway, returning to complete a master’s degree and, after my wedding, a Ph.D. I have worked in schools in a variety of capacities — both in admin and as a teacher. Currently, I work part-time as a maths tutor.

I am mum to two: one at Ravenscote and another at Prior Heath. I have volunteered in my children’s schools since they were little, and I am excited to be part of the great team here at Ravenscote.

Chloe Nolan 

Trust Governor

I started my career in 2019 where my passion for teaching flourished. I enjoyed creating a curriculum that inspired the children but also let me showcase a love of learning. In my second year, I become Science Subject Leader and embraced the wonders that a science curriculum entails. Establishing a strong science curriculum that influences pupils, expands their science knowledge and allows them to develop scientific enquiry skills motivated me. This encouraged me to develop outdoor learning, practical elements of teaching and expand the range of investigations pupils were conducting throughout school. In 2021 I was successfully credited the Quality Mark for Science. The school received the PSQM GILT award which was also highly commended. During a global pandemic this was not the easiest but developing a passion for the subject was showcased a high quality science curriculum and enriching the children's scientific enquiry skills.  

In 2021, I moved to Hampshire from Solihull, Birmingham and started working at The Cambridge Primary School in the September. As we have only just moved into our new home, I have enjoyed exploring the new area, going on walks and seeing the beautiful countryside. 

Teaching inspires me and I have a great passion for it. I enjoy networking with other professionals to generate engaging ideas for pupils. I became a governor to better understand the inner workings of the school environment  and have a wider impact on pupils education.
