Pen Portraits of our Governors

Anthea Kenna  

I am recently retired, following a career in Primary School Headship spanning 25 years. I worked in Cambridgeshire and Essex as Headteacher, Associate Adviser and School Improvement Partner and am currently working with schools within East Anglia as an adviser, supporting those schools requiring improvement. My expertise covers all aspects of school leadership and management. I am a keen musician and enjoy  performing with many amateur musical groups. I am a governor of three other schools within Cambridgeshire.

Edris Tildesley

I worked as a teacher, Headteacher, School Improvement Partner and Adviser in Cambridgeshire for many years. When I retired after 14 years as a Primary School Headteacher I continued to work part time as an Associate Adviser in Cambridgeshire working with schools to improve attainment, the quality of teaching and learning and pupil welfare. I have also worked as a coach/adviser with ‘Achievement for All’ a national organisation which focuses on improving outcomes for disadvantaged children. At present I am serving as a member of an IEB in a large primary school in Cambridgeshire.

James Robinson

I've previously worked as a classroom teacher, head of department and Specialist Leader of Education in computing and now work for the Raspberry Pi Foundation supporting educators to embrace digital making and computing. At present I lead work for the National Centre for Computing Education promoting effective teaching strategies. As a Bewick Bridge parent I volunteer my time to co-lead the schools after school code club.

Kerry Millbanks

I have worked as a teaching assistant at Bewick Bridge for the last 18 years and have been a member of the local community for the last 27 years. It’s a community which is one I cherish being part of. As an employee and member of the community, I have a unique insight into the the school’s values and ethos and those of the community too. I have been elected as the staff governor - I am excited to have a voice on the governing body so that I can contribute (in partnership with other governors) to the strategic development of the school.

Daniel Hart

I have lived in Cambridge since 1990 and have 6 children. I am a great believer of learning languages and experiencing difference cultures. I began my career in the Cities of both London and New York from there went to live in Spain farming melons and vegetable to supply the UK multiples.  I then joined the family produce company and went into partnership with a large US supermarket forming a joint strategy  to create a 2 billion supply platform. I became a NED and investor with a forensic computer business which we took to the market and then created a London property development . I then took time to build my home in Cambridge and diversified into other businesses. I have been a school governor for a year and am very impressed with the commitment and abilities of all educational colleagues. 

Hazel Ann Belchamber 

Prior to my retirement at the end of March 2022, I had worked for Cambridgeshire County Council for almost 35 years.  My management responsibilities principally focused on education planning including establishing new schools and expanding existing ones.  I also gained considerable experience in HR and personnel matters and finance.  Since February 2023 I have been volunteering as a School Reader at a small First School in Bedfordshire two afternoons a week.  I also enjoy walking, bird and animal watching and swimming.


Alagia Singam

I am a digital transformation, software automation, business management professional working in the technology and banking sector for more than 13 yrs.  Using my extensive knowledge,  I work to architect , consult and lead teams to build best in class solutions and projects.  I live in Cambridge since 2018 and have a Business Administration degree from Oxford Brooke’s Business school.  I am delighted to be part of Governing body and looking forward to apply/share skills to support in strategic development of the school. 


Pablo Castillo

My name is Pablo Castillo. I am pleased to join the Governing Board of Bewick Bridge in 2023. I am very proud that my children attend this outstanding school and to have seen them flourish. I am passionate about supporting the school to be its best and ensuring all our children get an excellent, well-rounded education. I have over 25 years of experience working as an account director in the IT industry. In my spare time,  I help as a youth leader at my local church and am an active parent supporting the Cherry Hinton Lion football club under 11s, which many of our Bewick Bridge children play in. I am looking forward to meeting many of you soon.
