Ms Kate Preston

Kate Preston began her career as a Mental Health Care Worker in Cornwall, before attending Brunel University to study an English and Creative writing degree. Her love of script writing and bringing ideas to life, led her first into a career in television, and then advertising. In the media industry she worked her way up to become a Producer/Director and Production Manager on creative projects for numerous corporate clients, including Channel 4 and the BBC.

After a decade of late nights and long haul flights, she moved back to the South West, and began working in the Event Industry as a Production Manager, on outdoor events for both Bristol Council and Glastonbury Festival.

However, marriage and motherhood changed her course again, when she moved to Frome in 2001, and took a job working in the Media Arts Department at Frome College. Here she was invited to train as an English teacher, at the University of Bath.

A decade later and Ms Preston has now taught in three schools, joining Selwood Academy first in 2018 as member of the PTA, then in January 2019 as an English Teacher, and most recently has had the privilege of becoming a school Governor.

Mrs Mandy Bailey

I first became a Governor 4 years ago as I was interested in contributing to school life on top of my normal day job in Selwood.  I enjoyed my term and have been able to recently start a second term. 

Being a Governor gives me the opportunity to be involved in the vast amount of work and decision making that goes into running a school.  As I am a Staff Governor my role within the school is as an HLTA for literacy.  This involves working with individuals and groups to help raise their ability and achievement in this vital subject.  I have been able to use my skills from industry as a former Buyer in my school role through my working knowledge of literacy.

As Chair of Governors from 2007 – 2017, I oversaw the transfer to Academy status in 2011, and became a Trustee and Director of the Academy Trust.  I led the school through three Ofsted inspections, including the most recent short inspection which assessed the school as good.

I have an educational background having previously taught Maths in Warwickshire and Lancashire. I have 3 sons who have all attended Frome schools, and having lived in the town for 30 years know the area and the other FLP schools very well.

I firmly believe in the value of Education for all pupils, respecting the individual needs of every child attending Selwood.

Mr Chris Bailey-Green

I have lived in Frome for almost 30 years and my daughters both went to school in Frome.  I became a community governor in early 2013 and shortly after became the Chair of the Resources Committee, which allowed me to bring my expertise in finance management and logistics to bear within the governor context.  I became Chair of Governors in September 2017 and very much enjoy being involved not only in governor duties, but also in the day to day activities of the academy.  In addition to being a governor, I am a member of the Lions Club of Frome, Frome Park Bowls Club and Frome Bridge Club.

Mrs Linda Puttock

I moved to Frome 38 years ago.  All three of my children attended Frome College and two of those children also attended Selwood. 

 I was trained as a Legal Secretary and when I came to Frome I worked for some years at Daniel Cruttwell.  While in this job I learnt a great deal about Frome and its people.   By a series of circumstances I then came in contact with an Educational Psychologist who wished to start a private practice in the area.  I became her PA and helped her set up the practice.  I found this job very rewarding and I enjoyed having contact with teachers, parents and children and I very soon became fascinated by how even very minor difficulties could affect the learning process.   

 I am an active member of the Church of England and feel that I am very much in tune with the vision and core values of the school, having a passionate belief that every child of whatever ability should be in an environment where they can be proud of their achievements. 

 Since retiring I have become a member of the Frome Society for Local Study, and enjoy visiting and learning about places of interest in the area.  I also enjoy walking and pottering in the garden.
