Callie Marsh

I have worked at Northolt High School for over 10 years now and I have enjoyed every minute.  I have been fortunate enough to see the school go from strength to strength, year after year, and I am excited for what the future holds for us.  I have a real passion for Northolt High School and I absolutely love my job, the students and staff here form an amazing community that I feel privileged to belong to.  I look forward to working as a governor of the school to continue to see Northolt High School provide every child with the absolute best life chances possible.

Warner Stainbank

I have been in the teaching profession for over 20 years working predominantly in Ealing. I am currently the headteacher of Wood End Academy. Many of the families that have attended Wood End go onto Northolt High School. Due to this, I feel I am very much part of the Northolt community. I believe a child's education is a fundamental part of their life and I strive for a well-balanced education and a happiness in learning.  I feel very lucky to be part of a dedicated and hardworking governing body who constantly strives for excellence and the best possible outcomes for the children.
