Governor Profiles

Sue Bonney

Chair of the Governing Body

Partnership Governor

I was born and had a very happy childhood in Northolt and have visited my family home throughout my adult life. My brothers were both students at Northolt High School.

I am currently a senior partner in KPMG, a large accounting and advisory firm where I have worked for the past 30 years.  Every day I see the challenges facing young people as they seek to enter the workplace. Our school has a vital role to play to equip our students with the core skills and values they need to succeed and be happy.  I am really pleased to have the opportunity to contribute to this school community.

Rishi Patel 

Co-Opted Governor
I am a young professional currently working in PR and Government relations for a boutique consultancy. Previously I have worked abroad in PR, and for the UK Civil Service.
As a Governor I am hoping to bring a new perspective from someone relatively young, but also someone who was fortunate enough to benefit from excellent education: at a successful independent school, Oxford University and UCL. Everyone in our community deserves an outstanding education, and I hope my skills and experiences of some of the country's best institutions will provide fresh perspective to the Governing Body. 
I have lived in Ealing all my life, and am passionate about local issues. I also come from a family where English is not the primary language spoken at home, and understand the unique challenges that can bring within the school environment. Every child deserves the best regardless of their background. I am excited to work with Northolt High School, to build an outstanding school to rival the very best.

I am a Parent Governor and I work for the NHS in Clinical Governance and understand the need to provide evidence for monitoring purposes and for Ofsted. I have a daughter in year 9 and my older children also attended Northolt High School. I have knowledge of the area and history of the school. I am one of the governors monitoring achievement and am also the SEN governor. 

Tina Murphy

Parent Governor

Member of the Finance and General Purposes Committee

With two children who are attending (years 10 & 11) and two children who have attended Northolt High School, I am passionate about ensuring educational opportunities are maximised for children of all abilities and backgrounds and that Northolt High School provides the best of education and pastoral support to each and every student. 

I have lived and worked in the borough of Ealing for all of my life and it is important to me to be involved in the community in which I live. I work as a primary school administrator and this role brings a unique perspective to my ability to be a Parent Governor as I am able to understand the many challenges a school faces.  I can apply my energy, enthusiasm and experience in this field to achieve positive change and transparency. I believe Northolt High School has an optimistic and bright future and I want to contribute to the ongoing work with staff, parents and students as well as the local community to ensure we become an outstanding school.
