Andy Green (Chair)

I have been a governor at Holly Lodge for 10 years, originally elected as a parent governor and now appointed as co-opted. I am currently on the Standards Committee and also responsible for governor monitoring of maths and behaviour. I joined as a governor as I wanted to put something back into the community and support education utilising my skills and experience gained as an IT consultant, whilst also having the opportunity to develop new skills in a completely different environment. I am also a member of Holly Lodge School Association. Interests include mountain biking, camping and sampling real ale.

Elliot Ammar (Vice-Chair)

Holly Lodge Primary School is truly representative of the community it serves, so as someone who lives in the local area and has a son who has just started his journey in education I am really proud to be one of it's Parent-Governors. I sincerely hope my previous experience of being secondary school teacher and Science Department Head, and now as manager at The Sixth Form College Farnborough, will make a positive impact on the school.

Anne Ross

I have been associated with Holly Lodge for more than thirty years. Originally as a member of the teaching staff appointed as a year leader and to help promote mathematics throughout the school. During my teaching career I became more involved in management and eventually became the Deputy Head. I have served as a governor for many years initially, prior to my retirement in 2005, as a Teacher Governor. Most recently as a governor I have chaired the Resources Committee. I have seen many changes in education and have been pleased to support Holly Lodge in ensuring that the welfare of all the school community has always been paramount during any new initiative.

Rachel Boys (Staff Governor)

I have a long history with the school, Holly Lodge means a lot to me. I attended the school for three years when it was a still a middle school, and I chose Holly Lodge for my two-week Secondary school work experience placement as a teaching assistant. In my central administrative role in the school office, I am able to bring together views from parents, staff and pupils. By being involved in various aspects of the school, I love feeling that I am really part of the school “family”. I live locally with my husband and young daughter, who has recently joined Holly Lodge as a pupil. My hobbies include travel, art, ancient history, and any holidays which combine all of these at once!

Chris Todd (Co-opted)

The Governing Body has overseen many changes in recent years, including the change of Head Teacher and the move to become an academy. During my time as a Governor, I have served on the Resources Committee as well as the Full Governing Body and have carried out other roles along the way. My favourite part of being a Governor is, without doubt, meeting and talking to the fantastic children and staff at Holly Lodge – it is always a pleasure. I work at Rushmoor Borough Council, within the Democratic Services Department and also serve Hampshire Fire and Rescue as a Firefighter. I am married and have 2 children who both currently attend Holy Lodge. My interests include running, gardening and watching my beloved Aldershot Town FC. I believe Holly Lodge has an incredibly bright future and it is a rewarding to feel that I may have played a small part in getting the school to the level it is at.
