Denise Egbury - Co-opted Governor
My name is Denise Egbury, married with two children. I relocated from South Yorkshire, where I worked in a Primary School as a School Business Manager. I enjoy the Primary School setting, and was invited to join the Governing Body in 2016. I enjoy swimming, fitness classes, walking, cake decorating and sewing when I have the time.

Adam Howes - Parent Governor
My name is Adam Howes and I have been elected as a Parent Governor. After finding a deep appreciation for Great Gidding since my children recently started at the school, it only seemed right to become a representative for the school. I work full time as a Civil Servant but enjoy spending time with family during my free time.
Suki Hinton - Headteacher
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Great Gidding Church of England Primary School and work with such creative and dedicated staff.
When I’m not at school, I love spending time with my family and friends and walking with Milo.
I’m passionate about storytelling and can either be found with my nose in book, or watching a film!
Joanne Taylor - Co-opted Governor
I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as the Chair of the Governing Body. I first joined the Governing Body as a Co-opted Governor in 2014 when my daughter joined in Year 3. I became Chair of the Resources Committee in 2016 and subsequently Chair of Governors in early 2019.
My professional background is in Programme and Change Management in both Operational and Enterprise Technology genres.
Through personal experience, I have developed a strong affection for our school and the ethos that it fosters. I feel extremely proud to be associated with Great Gidding School and have tremendous admiration for the teachers and staff who always go the extra mile to enable every child to reach their potential.
If at any time you would like to contact me or any member of the Governing Body, please leave a message for me with the school office or email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
