Alison Bateman


As Holy Trinity’s headteacher since September 2019, Alison is automatically also a governor. She has previously served on five other governing bodies including as a foundation governor, before going into teaching, and as a staff governor in her first post. As headteacher, Alison sits on all the committees and plays a vital role in governance opening herself to challenge and scrutiny. A pivotal memory from her primary years came in Year 5 when a teacher mentioned the idea of going to university, having never known a university graduate, thus planting a seed of aspiration which drove her to get there.
