Mr Frederick Watson
I joined the school as a parent governor in Dec 2018. I fully subscribe to the school’s ethos, its culture of inclusiveness, and the wellbeing and opportunities of every pupil and staff member.
I am here with an entrepreneurial and IT technical background having worked for many years for large blue-chip UK/US companies as an Oracle consultant. The last decade has seen me pivot from corporate to start up and SME’s. I have been able to build on entrepreneurial experiences gained in operating small businesses in both Latin America and here in the UK and I would like to think I can bring some of my working life experiences to the school board.
I believe that academies do have many commercial resemblances with business and although must operate externally competitively must also be internally supportive with a mix of great people, diligent financing, and appropriate technology to successfully deliver a superior and effective educational provision to students.
Being a governor at the school is an extremely rewarding role and I remain continually engaged in cooperating with the school to help achieve the excellence it deserves. I am proud to be part of working with Kingsbury High contributing to the strategy and policy and strive to influence positive outcomes for all pupils.
Ms Poonam Mehta
I am a Chartered Certified Accountant with over 14 years of experience across public, private and charitable sectors and have delivered improvements in value, information, processes and reporting. I am proficient in academy finance and charity accounting, and enjoy working with the aim of giving students the very best possible education. I believe that my background will support and add to the development of the school as it looks towards its future. I am appointed as a Parent Governor at KHS.
