Claire Carter

Parent Governor (Chair) / 25.01.21 / None / No / None

I am a parent of twins at St Anne's and am delighted that I have been given the opportunity to chair such a devoted governing body.  I believe in the ethos of the school very much and hope to continue to support the teachers and staff and be part of an ever changing environment to improve our children's lives and education.

I am presently devoting my time to family and school life. However, I have worked in numerous business and management roles, both in the North West and London, mainly in the areas of business training, business development and marketing and national account manager roles. I have worked in industries ranging from copyright, finance and security to travel. As well as a Business Master’s degree I also have a music degree and have taught piano privately. As a family we are members of St Teresa’s Church in Wilmslow and enjoy an active life in the community. 


Danny Baker

Parent Governor (Vice Chair) / 29.04.20 / None / No / None

I joined as a Parent Governor in May 2012 and enjoy the opportunity to work with the teachers and parents to help the school continue to provide the best possible education and environment for all our children, so they blossom and achieve their full potential. As a relatively new parent to the school I hope to be able to bring a fresh perspective to the Governing body as we support the Head. I work as a Regeneration Manager for a Housing Association and am married to Kay. I have a daughter who has now moved on to Wilmslow High School and a son who started at St Anne’s in 2013, so we’ll be involved with the school for some years to come! As a family we are actively involved in a local church, and in my spare time I enjoy watching and playing sports.

Foundation Governor / Ex Officio / None / No / None


Richard Matthews

Co-opted Governor / 23.10.22 / None / No / None

I'm a new parent to St Anne's Fulshaw with my child attending from 2017. I'm also fairly new to the North West having relocated from London in 2012. My involvement in school life to date has been fundraising related most notably the Bike Ride and also manning stalls at PTA events. My career managing resourcing teams across Europe allow me to support the school in people related matters such as TUPE, reward and performance management. I'm also well versed in GDPR processes / legislation.


Vicky Wilson

Co-opted Governor  / 20.03.2023 / None / No / None

My husband and I moved to Wilmslow in 2007 and we now have 3 children. Our eldest child started at St Anne’s in 2012 and, after having children at the school for several years, I realised that I would like to make a more significant contribution to the school. I became a governor in March 2019.


I work part-time as a professional support lawyer, specialising in corporate law, and I hope that some of my legal skills and experience will help in my role as a governor. In my spare time, I’m a keen runner, love my weekly dance class and act as chief logistics planner and taxi-driver for my children!

Anne Baker

Foundation Governor / 18.04.20 / None / No / None

I am the mother of four grown-up children and a member of St. Bart’s church. I was also Head of English in an Ursuline convent school in London before we moved to Wilmslow.

The positive Christian ethos of St Anne’s is one of its strongest characteristics, and I am proud to be able to support the efforts of all the staff in promoting the education and welfare of the children.

In my leisure time I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and energetic Labrador. I am also a keen fell- and long-distance walker. I sing regularly with the Barnaby choir in Wilmslow.


Natalie Lloyd

Co-opted Governor / 21.10.22 / No / No / None

I moved to Wilmslow several years ago and my eldest child began school at St Anne’s Fulshaw in 2011. I used to work as a Deputy Headteacher before I had children, so I feel very privileged to be able to play a part in the development of the school. I have also become involved in the PTA which I am finding really enjoyable. I love spending time with my husband and three children.


Jonathan Vose

Co-opted Governor / 11.10.20 / None / No / None

My principal involvement in school life to date, alongside charity bike riding and pond clearing, has been to voluntarily assist the delivery of the new Resource Room through managing the planning process in line with my profession as a Planning Consultant.

 My son started in Reception in 2014, hence I am still relatively new to school life. However, in that time, I have greatly enjoyed learning about school life, the school’s clear identity and ethos and how easy I have found it to feel part of the wider school community.

I was very pleased to take on the role of Associate Governor, principally to assist matters relating to school build and resourcing matters, and look forward to assisting the running of the school in any way I can as a newly Co-opted Governor.


Clare Daniel

Staff Governor / N/A / Headteacher at the school / No / None

I am the Headteacher at St Anne’s Fulshaw and have been since 2004. I am very proud of our lovely school and of the varied opportunities we give all of our children to enjoy learning and to succeed. I support a number of other schools during the year and take every advantage of seeing good practice and great ideas……and bringing them back to our school! In my spare time I love relaxing with my young family and enjoying music, film and art.


Wendy Clark

Staff Governor / 17.06.20 / Admin Officer at the school /  No  / None


I am the Admin Officer at St Anne's Fulshaw. I really enjoy my job which explains why I have been here for over 20 years! In my capacity as Staff Governor I am a member of the Resources and the Personnel, Pay and Performance Committees.


Maxine Drabble 

LA Governor / 15.02.21 / None / No / None

Originally from north Manchester I have spent my working career in London as Company Secretary for a variety of international companies across a range of sectors recently focussing on corporate governance and risk management.  Never having taken a gap year I decided to retire early and return to the North West.  I am an active member of St Bartholomew’s congregation and looking forward to contributing to the local community in a variety of ways.
