Through their representation of the wider school community (this includes the parents, school staff and other members of that community), governors help their school improve and provide the best possible education for their students.

Dr Dean James-Robbins - Chair of Governors

I have a professional background in Programme Management at the British Council where I have worked in a range of IT, Finance and Strategic Planning roles. I was also the Chair of Governors at an Islington Primary School for several years before I moved to Cornwall in 2021. I have an MA in Art History and a PhD in English Literature and am passionate about the creative and performance arts in education. I am currently the Safeguarding Link governor at LSCC.

Sarah Berne - Vice Chair of Governors

I have a background in education and relocated from the North West five years ago. My three children currently attend Liskeard School. In my role as governor I want to support the school in giving every child the opportunity to get the most out of their education and fulfil their potential.

Angela Edward-Jones

I have lived in Liskeard for almost 6 years, and currently work as a Head of Customer Service and Assurance.  I have previously been a School Governor/Chair of Governors at a primary school in Plymouth and have just completed a 9-year term as a Board Member at a South Devon Housing Association.  I’m looking forward to being part of Liskeard School, and hope I can make a contribution to its achievements.

Sarah Marshall

I retired in April 2022, having worked in Primary Schools since 1984, first as a teacher and then, from 2010, as a headteacher. My career in education has given me a broad overview of the challenges and also the rewards in trying to provide the best opportunities for children and young people. I have extensive experience across all areas of governance. I am keen to use the knowledge and skills I have acquired to continue supporting education and to contribute to the community.
