Meet the Governors

Alan Chamberlain

I joined the Governing Body in December 2017 as a Parent Governor and am a member of the Resources Committee.  I have an adopted daughter who started at Whitefriars in 2016, and have a keen interest in the development of children with learning disabilities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

I bring to the committee experience of running private businesses which included day to day operations management, staffing and HR, and full accountability for profit and loss. 

I have over 20 years experience within the insurance industry and more recently within recruitment.


Andrew Presland

I have been a school Governor (initially at the Junior School) since 2013, and serve on the Resources Committee and as the Safeguarding Governor.

By day, I am a Government statistician working in London. I am also an active member of Whitefriars Church, where I help lead a countryside walks group, and am a trustee of East Northants Community Services, which oversees the Rushden Night Shelter, Recovery House and food bank.

I also own a small woodland to the west of Kettering, which I am keen to be used by the local community for walking and camping.
