Our Governors

Angela Keepax

Having been a governor here a short while now I feel privileged to be part of a growing, successful school which is constantly developing an exciting curriculum for its pupils and encouraging pupils to be the best they can be. My teaching background, as well as being a parent of two boys, allows me to have a wide, balanced perspective of the running of the school. I am passionate about giving children an enjoyable education whilst ensuring they fill their full potential, and it’s important that parents are assured that their child is happy and achieving.

Susan Anderson 

I am a co-opted Governor at VIPS@KH however I am also a parent.  My background is HR so I have a solid understanding of how to build a team, make challenges as and when required, and assist with succession and getting the right people in the right places so they can flourish, ultimately helping our children to get the best possible experience the can whilst at our school.  I’m passionate about making a difference and will do all I can to encourage and support the senior team, wider staff community, parents and of course our children.

Annie Herlihy

As a new member, I am really excited to be part of the team at Kings Hill VIAT. I have previously worked in inner city secondary schools as a Head of Department for English and also have experience in primary liaison roles; helping to build connections between primary and secondary schools and to ease the difficult transition from KS2 to KS3. I am currently an English teacher at Invicta Grammar School and am taking on the role of Co-opted Governor at Kings Hill VIAT. As a new resident and parent to a pre-schooler, I have been really interested to find out about the ambitious yet nurturing environment created by the passionate teachers and school leaders at Kings Hill VIAT and look forward to supporting the school in its continued development.

Jenn Gomm

This my first post as a parent governor; I feel privileged to be able to use my corporate experience to help shape and contribute to their future success. With my son having been at Kings Hill VIAT since 2016, in the school’s infancy, it has been fantastic to watch the growth over this time and I look forward to working with the other governors to deliver further strategic change. My current link roles include personal development and, website and governance compliance.

Suzie Hammond

I was elected Parent Governor in March 2021 and I have been a parent of the school since 2016. I am very pleased to be part of the team and to be able to use my skills and leadership experience to support the school to continue to thrive. In my professional capacity I have worked in many retail leadership roles at various locations in the Southeast and for the last decade, I have been a senior leader of a complex, successful multimillion pound food retail operation in an employee-owned business. I am passionate about adult and child wellbeing and I have taken on the Wellbeing Governor link role.

Marina Azdejkovic

I was born in Macedonia where I finished Chemical Engineering and briefly worked in Public Water Supply and a local soft drink company on water quality. In 1999 I went to work for a charity and have stayed in the same sector ever since. I moved to London in 2001 and worked for various international organisations in finance roles and am currently working in London for the Standard Chartered Bank as a Director, Operations and Governance for the Sustainability function. I am also responsible for looking after governance and finance of the Standard Chartered Foundation which I helped set up in 2019. I hold MBA from Open University, specialising in CSR and financial risks. 

Aurore Laborie 

Since moving to the UK from my native France almost 10 years ago to complete my MSc in London, I am now a Team Leader in the R&D department of a global pharmaceutical company based in Kent.  Having lived in Kings Hill for over 5 years and in West Malling for 4 years, I have developed a strong connection to the area and am actively involved in supporting our local community. As part of that commitment, I am excited to be a new governor at Valley Invicta Primary School at Kings Hill.  As someone who has benefited a great deal from a good education, I care deeply about improving the educational experiences of young people. I am particularly interested in encouraging STEM subjects and creating a welcoming setting for high quality education. 

Marelle Giles

Having been in the teaching profession for almost 25 years, I am very pleased to hold the post of co-opted governor at Valley Invicta Kings Hill primary school.   Over the last year I have very much enjoyed seeing the school and students flourish under the care, guidance and support of the Headteacher and school staff.   In my role as Head of Lower School at Invicta Grammar School, I recognise the importance of High Quality Education in enabling students to achieve their potential academically and also in helping them become the very best individuals that they can be.   It is with this professional experience that I hope to be an asset to the school and support school leaders and staff in maintaining the high standard of education and care offered.
