Our Local Governing Board support the school moving forward

Barry Smith

Acting Chair of Governors

Leigh Kilpert

I currently work as Head of Strategy Engagement at University College London (UCL). I am responsible for monitoring and reporting on the progress of our Education Strategy, as well as assisting in the development of new strategies. I design and lead projects that enhance our students’ experience of their education, with a particular focus on assessment and feedback.

I have worked in higher education for more than 16 years in a variety of roles: administration, management, and teaching. I have worked in three different countries and am acutely aware of the pressures faced by all forms of education in a global economy.

I applied to be a governor because I am believe strongly that a child’s education is a collaborative effort between teachers and parents. I am grateful for the responsibility I have been given and look forward to representing the views and concerns of the Wroxham School parent community.

Roger Billing

I am Headteacher at The Wroxham School and feel exceptionally proud to work so closely with our school community.  I have worked in a number of schools, however, this is my second time at Wroxham, having been Deputy here between 2008-2012.  

Our Local Governing Body has many new members, but it is already apparent that they are well placed to challenge and support the school moving forward.

Jenisa Altink

I currently work for the legal publishing division of a FTSE 100 global provider of information-based analytics, overseeing the strategic development of a product specialising in public company transactions and corporate governance. My corporate perspective gives me a fresh take on the challenges faced by the education sector.


I am passionate about fostering enthusiasm and enjoyment for education from a young age, and currently sit on the governing body of two primary schools in Hertfordshire.  I am delighted to have an opportunity to contribute to the development of Wroxham as a parent governor.

Andy Hill

As a Co-opted Governor, and member of the premises committee, I have served on the Board of Governors since early 2019. My professional knowledge, as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, lends itself to this role and my experience, as a Director and team leader in a commercial environment, offers an alternative perspective to school life and operations. 


I am also a parent at The Wroxham School and have a keen interest in the delivery of excellent education to all the children, in a happy and safe environment. Having joined the Board of Governors at an exciting time for the school, as it was welcomed by the Ivy Learning Trust, I will continue to serve as a Governor on the Local Governing Board to ensure that the highest standards are upheld and delivered.
