Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section.



Angela Adams - Foundation (PCC) Governor

I am a primary school teacher and I have lived and worked in Caterham since 2009. Previous to this, I was teaching in Essex and have worked with underprivileged children in South Africa and with children with language difficulties in Australia. During my time as a teacher, I have worked across all year groups. I have also been responsible for writing new curricula and I have carried out projects and organised events which have enabled the school I worked for to achieve awards such as: the Anti-bullying award and the Enhanced Healthy Schools status. I have also trained as a Thrive practitioner, which is a programme designed to support children with emotional and behavioural difficulties to reach their full potential. My son joined St Peter and St Paul's in 2017 and I hope to use my skills and experience in education to enable the school to continue to be a school that provides an outstanding education in a supportive and nurturing environment.


Steph Bailey – Headteacher, ex-officio Governor

I have been teaching since 1981 and am in my fifth year as Headteacher here. I previously had two Deputy Headships in Richmond and in Kingston, the first in a two form and the second in a one form entry primary school. I completed the National Professional Qualification for Headship during the second of these deputy headships. I bring a wealth of experience around children and learning to the Governing Body as well as a growing knowledge of finance, buildings and personnel.
