About us

Toni Brookshaw - Chair of Governors:

I joined the Board of Governors in March 2017 and was elected as Chair of Governors shortly after.  I love being part of the school and am so proud of the Willaston team and community. I am also a member of the Resources and Curriculum Committees. I have 15 years experience in education, across a variety of settings.  I am a qualified secondary school teacher, teaching History and Politics.  I work in a local Cheshire East school, that was rated Outstanding by OfSTED in 2015-2016. I am also the Specialist Subject Lead for History at Cheshire East SCITT.


Dr Jenny Moran - Chair of Curriculum Committee:

I have been a Governor at Willaston for nearly 16 years, 8 of which was as Chair. I am now Chair of the Curriculum Committee.  My 3 children all went to Willaston and I have seen the school through many changes. I work at Keele University and have a PhD in immunology and inflammation. I love being a Governor at Willaston; we have fantastic children and supportive parents who really care about their children, it is a privilege to help keep Willaston successful. 


Ken Mitchell - Chair of Resources Committee:

Quality education is very close to my heart. Previously I was both the Chair of Trustees for a Multi Academy Trust (The Birchwood Trust) and Chair of Governors at the Berkeley Academy where I was a governor for nine years. I currently Chair the Resources Committee at Willaston.  I have an international commercial background stretching back over 30 years.  The business skills that I have acquired on this journey are the ones that I use within the school forum and hope these will aid Willaston in improving on its already fabulous offering. 


Professor Steve Cropper:

I was appointed to the Board in January 2010. I work at Keele University, as a specialist in health services and education management. As you will imagine, I talk a lot, but I also run, walk and climb a bit. I am on the school's Curriculum Committee and have a particular interest in issues related to SEND provision.  I am also Chair of Governors at another school.
