Boxgrove Governors are all fully involved in the life of our school.  

Our Chair of Governors is Mrs Christa Wijnja and she can be contacted via the School Office (01483) 563701 or email 

I started as a Parent Governor in 2009 and was appointed Chair of Governors in September 2015.  I am also a Director of the Guildford Education Partnership. Being a Governor is challenging in an ever changing environment but incredibly rewarding. I have worked for over 20 years in Financial Services as a Change Professional, where I have covered a variety of areas: business analysis; project management; risk management and project governance.  This experience has given me skills which I am now using in my role as School Business Manager at a local school. In my spare time I am actively involved as a committee member for a children's activity organisation running a variety of activities on Saturday morning for children aged 5 - 13.  I have two boys who are both attending George Abbot.
