Diana Ayling

I have lived in Hildenborough for over 40 years. I have been a governor at the school for 8 years, and I have 3 grown up children and 4 grandchildren.

I worked at Stocks Green Pre-school for 10 years as the Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO), so I have a special interest in the Early Years in school, and in the process of identifying and supporting children with Special Educational Needs. As a result, I am the Early Years and SEN Governor.

My hobbies are gardening, pilates and playing badminton.

I come in to school as often as I can, and it is always a pleasure to see the enthusiasm for learning from the children and the dedication and commitment from all the staff.

Rob Chewter

I am married and have lived in Hildenborough for 35 years and am lucky that my daughter, son and five grandchildren live here also. I retired three years ago after a long and varied career which covered engineering, sales and all levels of management. My final position was running a very successful international communications company that employed over 100 people based in Redhill. My hobbies are golf and gardening and my wife and I are members of the National Trust and RHS. I now don't know how I found time for paid employment. The Governing Board is made up of a very committed group of people with a wide range of skills focused on supporting the Teachers and Staff in delivering an outstanding education to our pupils in a safe, happy, and rewarding environment and I am proud to be part of that Team. Also just a reminder that parent feedback is important to the Governing Board, so please feel free to raise any issues or concerns you have.
