"I became a school governor for the first time at St. John's in 2015 after becoming a regular worshipper at St John the Evangelist and a local to Brixton.   My professional background is in law, which has equipped me well to scrutinise and challenge in order to support the leadership team at St John's.  I have a special interest in reading and I am currently supporting the school to create a library for our learners". 

Chris Taylor

I am a chartered accountant working for one of the large accounting firms in London. I worship at St. Margaret’s, Chipstead where I have been both Church Treasurer and Churchwarden.

At the time that I became a Governor at St John’s, there was a link between the parishes of St John’s and St Margaret’s. Through this link an advert appeared in a Sunday pew sheet seeking someone with financial experience to join the Board of Governors at St John’s. I felt a strong calling to respond to this.

Since that time, I can honestly say that it has been an honour to serve as a Governor of the school. I have been blessed to have had an opportunity to meet so many inspiring people both within the school and within the local community.

I am married with two daughters – one of whom is at university and the other of whom is in her final year of school.

 “It was an absolute pleasure to be considered to be governor and actually becoming one at St John’s.

 For the last 25 years I have been working within Education, spanning from Primary through to University, and Europe.  I started as a youth worker in South London and was asked to work inside a pupil referral unit which changed my whole approach to education, so I decided to become a Behaviour Consultant looking at how to engage student who are indifferent.  After completing my Degree in Youth Justice And Social Policy, I went on to complete my QTLS and started running educational projects for various educational setting.  Currently, I run my own small company providing education and training to the unique.

I enjoy singing, and my most favourite pastime in reading.  I have a beautiful daughter who is currently in secondary school and I am guardian to my son from China who came to live with us 5 years ago and studied at Manchester University.  I am passionate about being able at what you are good at and never giving up on your dreams.”

Patricia Omonua

I am delighted to take up my first Governors role at St John’s Angell Town, I am a mother three children and am passionate about high quality education and each and every child reaching their full potential St John’s Angell Town.

I hope to be able to represent other parents to ensure all the children at the school have the best possible start in life: This relates to the education provided as well as an environment that is caring, supportive, helpful and nurturing.

I am really looking forward to working with the children, staff and families within the school community.

Damilola (Dami) Bamidele

I have been working in the third sector for over thirteen years; I have worked nationally and internationally devising and leading projects within the education, manufacturing, and not for profit sectors. I have worked in everything from Project Management to International Events Management to Grants Coordination and Fundraising. I am a huge supporter of education, for the past 10 years I have worked mostly in higher education however I began my career supporting primary and secondary education.

I have organised conferences in different parts of the world such as Jamaica, South Africa, and New Zealand to name a few. I love to travel and have been very fortunate that in previous roles I was able to see the world.  

I am passionate about books, films (action and sci-fi), music, and theatre. My passion for books led me to start a book club twelve years ago, which meets monthly, we mostly eat and gossip, but we do manage to squeeze in some literature!
