I am confident of bringing my professional and ministerial experience and skill to complement the Board to see Holy Trinity School turn around her present position for the better.

Being a school governor will enable me to invest in the learning and development of Children and young people and a way of getting involved in the community.

My background is in Montessori education. I have worked in Montessori nurseries and schools, independent primary schools and state primary schools for the past 21 years in a variety of roles. This has included spending several years as an Early Years Foundation Stage teacher in a local school.

I currently work as a 'Wellbeing Manager' in a Primary School where I am part of the safeguarding team and a trained 'Designated Safeguarding Lead'. I work closely with the Senior Leadership Team to support all the pupils and the families of this school. My role means that I have links with Early Help, Social Services, School Liaison Officers, Community Paediatrics and Young Carers (to name a few) on a regular basis. I work closely with the Special Educational Needs Coordinator and run Lego Therapy sessions and Outdoor Learning interventions to support children. I am in the process of completing a Counselling course to become a Counsellor for children of Primary School age.

I care passionately about children's education, attainment and their whole school experience. I believe that every child has the right to a good education. I want all children to be able to achieve and be successful so that they can become the best that they can be.   

Ms. A. Hallam  

My name is Angela Hallam and I am thrilled to have been elected as one of the newest Governors for Holy Trinity CoE Primary School who share my values in diversity, inclusivity, respect and honesty.

As a governor, I am committed to ensuring that all pupils have access to the best possible education that the school can provide and for ensuring a safe and supportive environment for the children to learn and thrive. Having lived in Gravesend all my life, I relish the opportunity to making a difference to the education of children in a local school.

I come from an IT background and worked for 25 years for a very large Multinational Investment Management company, supporting colleagues across the Globe. I now work part time for Ellenor as a Ward Clerk and I volunteer in their HR Department. I also have the role as Treasurer of the PTA for the school my daughter attends.


Parent Governor


Staff Governor 

Mr. M. Dockrell

I am the Deputy Head Teacher here at Holy Trinity and have taught here for thirteen years across many year groups and in a variety of different roles. Holy Trinity has always held a special place in my heart and I even completed part of my own teacher training here! I am now looking forward to supporting the school and working within a different capacity. For a number of years I have been a Specialist Leader of Education and have supported colleagues in other schools throughout Kent with a particular focus on Initial Teacher Training, Newly Qualified Teachers and Professional Development. Our school is an Advanced Partnership School with the University of Greenwich and I am a Senior Mentor, therefore, I often interview for people to get places on teacher training programmes. Recently I have been accredited with the Church of England National Professional Qualification for Headship (CoEPQH) which has equipped me well for leading within a faith based school and supporting the strategic direction of the school. I honestly couldn't think of anywhere else I would rather work and spend the majority of my time. To come in each day and be blessed with (your) delightful children, a fantastic, hard working staff team and supportive parents really does make each day special and rewarding.

Outside of school I enjoy spending time with friends and family, relaxing with my cat, Bob (I often try and fit Bob into a maths word problem or two) and escaping up to the Lake District for some walks, climbs and quiet moments taking in the idyllic scenery (along with an occasional pub lunch!) I'm looking forward to this new position and all of the exciting opportunities ahead.
