Former Governors

Mrs. Gillian Binnie (Term Ended)

I was delighted to join Grendon’s Governing Board earlier in 2018.  

My background is as a secondary school teacher in London and Birmingham.  I taught History and other Humanities subjects in east Birmingham for many years.  I became SENCO then Director of Inclusion/Assistant Headteacher.

As well as experience of helping students with special educational needs and/or disabilities to achieve their targets and move onto the next steps, post-16 and beyond, I have worked in the areas of English as an Additional Language (EAL) and with hearing impaired students, as we were fortunate to be able to establish a hearing resource base at school.  I retired in 2017. I am doing a little part-time work at my previous school, but also enjoying the chance to catch up on sewing, gardening, theatre, music and travel, and have started a part-time MA in West Midlands History - so I am a student too!

We have two daughters who have benefited greatly from education in the second city; one is now a physiotherapist and the other teaches at a university.  

Being a governor at Grendon is a chance for me to ‘put something back’ into the Birmingham education community.  I have only been a governor for a short while, but am very impressed with the children’s behaviour and efforts, the staff I’ve met so far and the colourful and positive environment. I want to contribute towards the strong ‘We can’ ethos at Grendon and to help the school, staff and students move forward to even greater achievements.

Ms. Ruth Nolan (Resigned 04.01.24)

I work part-time as a Solicitor and am a mum to two teenage boys. I applied to join the Governing Board as I have seen the positive difference good leadership makes to a child’s school experience.

I enjoy playing tennis, walking my dog and spending time with my family.
