"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 to support the leadership team at St John's.  I have a special interest in reading and 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 Church Treasurer and Churchwarden.

When I became a Governor at St John’s, there was a link between St John’s and St Margaret’s parishes. 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 is at university, and the other is in her final year of school.

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

 For the last 25 years, I have been working in Education, 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 students who are indifferent.  After completing my Degree in Youth Justice And Social Policy, I completed my QTLS and started running educational projects for various educational settings.  I run my own small company providing education and training to the unique.

I enjoy singing, and my favourite pastime is reading.  I have a beautiful daughter currently in secondary school, and I am a 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 governor's role at St John’s Angell Town; I am a mother of three children and am passionate about high-quality education and each and every child reaching their full potential at St John’s Angell Town.

I hope 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 and an environment that is caring, supportive, helpful and nurturing.

I look forward to working with the school community's children, staff and families.

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,/docs/Governor_Attendance_at_FGBs_2021-2022.pdf 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!  

My name is Maria McBean, and I am a foundation governor. I have lived in Brixton all my adult life.

 I chose to serve on the governing body because I noticed a decline in the number of children who go to St John’s school coming to church on Sundays. I think that church and school could work together a bit more.

My children were once students at St John’s school, and we attended church regularly.

I was a parent governor, vice chair and, for a short period, the chair of the governing body. I have memories of being interviewed by OFSTED in the porta cabin for an hour during that time!

I am passionate about children being happy at primary school and being allowed to develop basic skills that will equip them to continue their future learning journey.

I have worked in schools since 2002, so I have some experience with how schools operate, there have been many changes in that time, and I feel that as a governor, I can contribute in a positive and reflective way.
