Meet the Governors

Natasha Grande

Co-Chair of Governors

Grace Walder

Co-Chair of Governors

Lilla Lovrencsics

Vice Chair of Governors

I have been a Parent Governor since September 2021.

Having both my children attending the school, Holy Trinity and the local community have been part of our everyday life for the last few years.

My professional background is in finance and accounting. My day job is helping corporates manage their treasury and commodity related risks. I am also passionate about caring for people and I manage the learning and development of my team, support my colleagues as a career coach and actively work on improving diversity and inclusion at my workplace.

Using my experience I am keen to support the school to provide a caring and stimulating environment for the children.

Gemma Anderson

Chair of Standards, Teaching and Learning Committee

I am a Foundation Governor appointed by Holy Trinity Church in Autumn 2020. Also, I sit on the Standards, Teaching & Learning committee.

I am a teacher in a local school and I hope to bring my experience within the education sector to use as a governor. I am passionate about pupil progress and ensuring outstanding outcomes for all.

I have lived in the area for several years and am looking forward to contributing to the Holy Trinity community and supporting the work of the school

Sue Smith

Chair of Business Committee, Health & Safety Governor

First and foremost I’m a parent of a child attending the school so I have a vested interest in the key priorities, management, and governance of the school. I am an active member of the Holy Trinity community and hope to extend my contributions specifically to Holy Trinity Primary School. Since 2018 I have volunteered as Clerk to the Business Committee, and subsequently extended as Clerk to the STL and CFC Committees at Holy Trinity, prior to becoming a Governor in 2021.

Professionally, I work as a commercial manager, and therefore have excellent numerical, analytical, and problem solving skills, coupled with effective decision making and negotiation skills.

Clare Judd

Chair of Children, Families and Community Committee

I am a Foundation Governor appointed by Holy Trinity church in October 2020. I am the chair of the CFC Committee.

I work as a local GP and also teach at St George’s University Medical School where I completed a PGCE in higher education healthcare. I believe children thrive in a healthy and happy environment and I hope that I can support the school in my role as governor. I have a particular interest in sport and well-being.

Sarah Williams

Chair of Faith Team

I was voted in as a parent governor in 2021. I have three children, two of which are still at Holy Trinity. Since joining the school family nearly 10 years ago I have had the opportunity to support the children and their families in many different projects and activities. Currently I am chair of the faith team which helps to guide our christian ethos throughout school life and ensure we are supporting each of the children in their faith journey.

I am passionate about making our community a more inclusive place by bringing people together and helping individuals and families’ wellbeing. Our school is a hub for the local community and I want to make sure that each individual who attends feel like they belong and are valued as part of that community.

Camilla Wheeler-Bennett

Safeguarding Lead

I was appointed Local Authority Governor in September 2020 and I sit on the Standards, Teaching & Learning committee. I recently moved into the area and had heard of the fantastic reputation Holy Trinity has. I am honoured to be a part of the governing body and I will strive to help shape Holy Trinity’s future vision.

By day I am a prep school teacher based in Westminster and have taught all subjects, including SEN and learning development. By night, I am a mum of two boys. I am passionate about our children’s future, beginning with their education and I truly believe in the saying, “school is the best time of your life”. I hope to do everything I can to support Holy Trinity in providing a safe, nurturing environment for all pupils to enjoy and achieve.

Lee Howes

Governor and Treasurer

I am a Foundation Governor appointed by the Diocese of Southwark in September 2018.
In my role with the Governing Board I am a member of the Business Committee and also undertake Treasury responsibilities, whilst my professional background is in HR and facilities alongside property investment and portfolio management.

I have been involved with Holy Trinity since 2012, initially through my children's attendance. My interest in working with the Governing Body remains driven by the opportunity to support the School in providing an inclusive, nurturing learning environment where both staff and children feel motivated and individually valued.

Rev Mark Eminson


I am delighted to be an ex-officio governor by virtue of my role as the Team Rector of Merton Priory Team Ministry, based mostly at Holy Trinity Church. I am also a governor at The Priory and I enjoy visiting both schools on a regular basis to lead assemblies.

Schools are places of learning and yet so much more; in different ways, akin to a family or a church, fundamental building blocks of a happy, just and holy society, such as our commitments to care for the creation and to work for racial justice.

Shipra Gupta


I am a Parent Governor, elected in Dec 2020, when I started on the Children, Families and Community Committee and then moving on to the Business Committee.

Holy Trinity has been an integral part of our lives through my two children, the older having gone on to secondary education in 2021 and the younger in KS2 at the School.

I am delighted to be given the opportunity to contribute to the development of our School and our children, and to create a vibrant community surrounding us, where every child, together with their families, feels belonged, loved and supported.

On the professional front, I have worked in several business functions across Financial Services, Management Consulting, Healthcare and also a Social Enterprise. Over the last 9 years, my focus has been increasingly on integrating sustainability (environmental, social and governance) factors in business-as-usual, and also developing new propositions in this space. My current role is in Responsible Investment for one of UK’s largest pension funds. Additionally, I have sat on Boards of non-profit organizations, and volunteer in the local community, as and when I can.
