Governor Profiles

Graham Hudson - Chair of Governors

I was appointed as a Foundation Governor to the school in 2020. My whole career has been in education and educational assessment. Originally, I taught sciences in a Secondary School in Hampshire. I then moved into high-stakes educational examinations and assessments and participated in many of the educational reforms of the 1980s and 1990s. At one time I was responsible for the marking of Key Stage 2 and 3 tests for England.


I moved into the use of digital technologies to support educational assessment in schools which led to an interesting ten years travelling to many countries to support educational systems in implementing change.


I now provide consultancy to professional bodies, national and international organisations that wish to improve educational outcomes for children, pupils and students by making use of digital technologies.


I was a governor and Chair of Governors at Bell Vue Infant School for 11 years (now Alderwood Infant School).


I am Secretary of the e-Assessment Association, a member of the Institute of Directors Assessment Committee, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a Board Member of Qualifications Wales.


I have been married to my wife Anne for 39 years, lived in Aldershot for most of that time, have two sons, three grandchildren, three Land Rovers.

Janet Ruthven

I am a foundation governor and became a governor in 2015 when my elder daughter was in year 3.  I am the safeguarding governor and also have responsibility for RE and collective worship. 

As a member of the church, I am keen to continue to build links between the church and the school.  I passionately believe in life in all its fullness for our children.  As well as supporting the school with my responsibilities, I really enjoy volunteering to help on the school trips, and giving the children experiences outside of school that they might not otherwise have experienced.

Hello, I'm one of the Foundation governors, appointed by the Diocese of Guildford in January 2021.  I've lived in Farnborough for most of my adult life, am a member of St Peter's church and until my retirement taught locally.  My three children were all pupils at St Peter's and I served as a governor at that time.  It seems very natural to return to the governing body in retirement as a way to continue my interest in education and, in particular, to support a school close to my heart.  As a grandparent I want my grandchildren to be well equipped to deal with all that the modern world will throw at them - where better to serve then, than a school seeking to enable children to live life in all its fullness!
