Foundation Governors

Chair of Governors 

My name is Ann Cowell formerly Ann Nichol. I was appointed as teacher of Food Technology at Christ the King High School formerly St John Fisher in 1978 and had the privilege of working there for 38 years in various roles.

After retirement I wanted to continue working with the school I love and became a Foundation Governor in 2016. Due to my long tenure at the school I know many of our parents as former students and I hope that I can continue to provide all our students with memorable experiences that they will be able to look back on in years to come with great fondness. To enable this I aim to support my fellow governors, staff, parents and students in their understanding and involvement in all aspects of school life.

My son was a student at Christ the King from September 1994 until May 1999. I became a Foundation Governor in that time. I lead the ‘Little Church’ (Children’s Liturgy)Team at St Wilfrid’s Church Preston and also help children to prepare for the Sacraments of First Holy Communion & Reconciliation. I have also been involved with Scouting since I was a teenager and now help at 2 separate Scout Groups. I retired from teaching (Primary) in 2009.

Member of: Standards & Effectiveness Committee

As the current serving Headteacher at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Preston, I bring my knowledge of the curriculum, school management and school improvement.

I am passionate that Catholic education should enable all children, regardless of their background to achieve their true potential.

Through my contribution to the strategic direction of Christ the King, I am able to live out my faith and serve the community.

‘I am Father Simon Hawksworth and I am the Parish Priest of St. John XX111 parish which includes most of the feeder primary schools for Christ the King. I have been a priest since 1994 and over the years have been a governor in many primary schools and four secondary schools and so I have a lot of experience in Catholic education. Before I was a priest, I worked in the NHS in financial and management accounts and subsequently I have served as a diocesan trustee and on the diocesan finance and school building committees.’

Staff Governors

At Christ the King, I currently hold two positions of leadership responsibility: Head of English (KS3) and Head of Learning and Life Skills.  I am passionate about Education and value that Christ the King recognises and develops the whole child – by supporting all in achieving their potential – spiritually, academically and personally.  I feel strongly that our English Curriculum is a major component of this because it equips the students with the knowledge and skills to critically evaluate the world whilst fostering their curiosity, awe and wonder for learning.  I take responsibility for leading a high value PSHE curriculum by guaranteeing the strategic delivery of statutory content and embedding it within the whole school curriculum. My overview of these areas, as well as supporting the Student Council and Prefect Team, ensures that we prepare the students not only for academic success but create responsible citizens of the future.

Co-Opted Governors

Member of: Resources & Standards & Effectiveness Committees

I am Head of MFL and Able and Talented Lead at Christ the King Catholic High School and have worked here since 2009 and I have been a Governor since 2016 I bring my knowledge of the Curriculum and am able to advise and inform the Governing Body on school related business.

I am the Assistant Headteacher, responsible for Curriculum at Christ the King for the past seven years, but I have taught at Christ the King as a teacher of Physics since 2003, and have had numerous responsibilities during that time (Literacy Coordinator for 4 years and a pastoral lead (Achievement Coordinator) for 13 years). I am local to Preston and the local community having grown up in Deepdale. I was baptised at St Augustine’s, attended St Ignatius Primary School, and I have undertaken all other sacraments from First Holy Communion to Marriage at St Ignatius, and was a regular worshipper at St Joseph’s (until St Gerard’s in recent years) – therefore I know and understand the wants, needs and requirements of the local community well.
