Our Governors

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.


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.

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.

Since 2016, I have volunteered at my local primary school, providing classroom support for Key Stage 2 children. I am delighted to be joining Valley Invicta Kings Hill Primary School as a Co-opted Governor, and hope to use my experience to help the school and its pupils to continue to flourish.
