Shiela Winwright

I became a governor at The Gilberd in December 2015 and am the Link Governor for (i) PHSE (personal health and social education), (ii) Information, Advice, Guidance, Economic Well-being and Future Skills and (iii) Progress and Quality of Teaching and Learning in Humanities. 

I am also a governor at St John’s C of E Primary school where I sit on both the personnel and curriculum committees. Born and educated in Ireland, I am married to Bob and have two sons, one of whom attended the Gilberd. Prior to starting my family I worked with homeless people in various locations across London, latterly managing a large direct access hostel for men in Willesden. I currently work as a volunteer in the St Helena Hospice day centre and my interests include spending time with my family, going to the theatre, reading and photography.
