It is with a great sense of privilege that I accepted the appointment as Chair of Governors of St. Aubyn’s School.

In 1998, as new arrivals in Woodford Green, finding the best school for our children was a high priority. By 2003 all three of our children were lucky enough to have secured places at St. Aubyn’s! I have no doubt that it was one of the best decisions we made on their behalf.

As the School is a charity (Charitable Trust Number 270143), with no shareholders or owners, all income received is spent on developing educational resources and facilities. There is a continuing commitment by Governors to maintain a fully resourced well-staffed School, offering excellent modern facilities and small teaching groups and classes.

I have seen dramatic changes and developments during my involvement with the School, not only in the number of pupils but also in the provision of additional and improved buildings, learning facilities and educational resources along with extra teachers for music, sport, and drama. The School has invested in technology for each department, enabling pupils to use hand held devices to help them access the curriculum. The School continues to deliver exceptional educational opportunities for its pupils and the result of this investment is that the majority of pupils obtain places at selective independent and grammar schools. The School provides a balanced and all round approach that provides pupils with the preparation they require to succeed at senior school and in later life.

It is always a pleasure to visit the school and see these facilities being used by the pupils using the words of our School motto – Bravely, Faithfully, Happily.




St. Aubyn’s (Woodford Green) School Trust is both a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales. The School Governors are Trustees and Directors accountable to the Charity Commission and Companies House. Governors are appointed by invitation of the Board, are not employees of the School and receive no remuneration for the services they provide.

I can be contacted either by telephoning the Clerk to the Governors on 0208 504 1577 or emailing on I very much look forward to working with Mr Blom, the governors and all the staff of St. Aubyn’s in the forthcoming year.
