Mick Webb

General member


Chair of the Local Committee


I have been a governor since May 2005 and started as a Parent Governor, progressed to a Local Authority Governor and now am a General member of the Local Committee. I coached a local football team (Ottershaw FC) for 15 years from junior to adult football and for many years refereed football at adult level. I still run fitness boot camps in the village and along with my wife, Marise still coach children in football and fitness. We also run our own Health & Wellbeing business. Outside of sport for many years I have been writing a fiction thriller and hope to finish it in the next 12 months. Being born and brought up in Leeds I am still an avid Leeds Utd supporter and have sadly influenced my 20 year old son Jack to do the same! We also have two daughters, Emily and Maddie and all three of our children attended the schools.

Vice Chair of the Local Committee 

As a busy magazine editor - it's not always easy to help out and be involved with everything that I'd like to be. But, for me - becoming a member of the Local Committee and more recently vice chair is a way that I can try and give that little bit back. I have had two children start their education at the Infant School and am passionate, as is every parent I'm sure, for children to get the best start on their educational journey as possible. To be a part of that journey, involved in helping the school and it's amazing team be the best it can be is not only exciting and rewarding but a privilege too.


Jo Hastings



I joined the Governing Body when I took over as substantive Headteacher in September 2014. I am passionate about education and preparing children to be successful adults. I live locally with my partner, young daughter and dog. Family life and my extended family are very important to me.


Debbie Jenkyn

Staff member

Elected by Staff

Deputy Headteacher

I have been a member of the Governing Body since 2010 and became a member of the Local Committee following the schools' conversion to an academy within the Good Shepherd Trust. Within my role as teacher, Deputy and Local Committee member I have been privileged to get to know many of the children and families of Ottershaw well. Outside of school my family and I share a passion for the outdoor life. We live on a small holding locally - and have a number of pets including dogs, pygmy goats, donkeys and assorted ducks, chickens and geese!


Bianca Williams

Parent member

Elected by Parents


I became a parent member in March 2017 with the intention to help support the schools become the best that they can be. I look forward to making a contribution through the exciting times ahead.

I live locally with my husband and our 2 sons, one in the junior school and one in the infant school. In my working life I am Operations Manager for an Insurance Services company, and I am lucky to be able to balance this part-time with looking after my children. I enjoy keeping fit and I value quality time with my family and friends.


Neil Griffiths

Parent member

Elected by Parents


I became a Parent member in April 2018. I live 10 minutes walk from the school with my wife Nici and our two girls, one of whom joined the infant school in September 2017.

I work in Regulatory Operations for an Insurance firm in London and hope that some of that experience will be useful to the school going forward. I enjoy keeping fit and watching all sports and am a big supporter of Swansea City.

I look forward to making a contribution to school life and seeing the school develop in the coming years.

Foundation member

I became a foundation member in July 2019. I live in Ottershaw and have two children who have both attended the infant school and are now at the juniors. In my working life I am a Family Law Consultant and in my spare time I volunteer at Homestart to help people locally who may be struggling with a young child. I am passionate about Ottershaw schools and enjoy helping and giving something back.


 Alasdair Gordon

General member

Appointed by the GST


I became a general member at the tail-end of 2019 and am very much enjoying my time on the Local Committee. I live locally with my wife Suzi, and we have three girls - two of whom are currently at Ottershaw.

I work as an Office Manager for a Member of Parliament and have worked in Westminster for over eleven years. This has spanned four General Election campaigns and two referendums - one perhaps, slightly more notable than the other! I have a particular interest in education and am currently launching a small educational project in East London called 'Donate A Workspace'.

Outside of work, I enjoy cycling and playing cricket. I am also a keen supporter of Leeds United and hope that - one day - my blind loyalty will be rewarded.
