Adele Burke

Deputy Chair and Parent Governor - Finance & Staff Committee

My name is Adele Burke and I have lived in Balcombe for 14 years.  I have three children, one of whom is at Balcombe school – Callum, and I am proud to say that they are the 4th (maybe 5th) generation of my husband’s family to have attended the village school.  My son William and daughter Katherine have now moved to Warden Park.  My background is in HR and I work for a global manufacturing company.  I feel very fortunate to be part of the governing body of such a brilliant village school – I have watched my children grow and develop during their time at the school and I want to support and contribute to such a great learning environment.  I am passionate about everyone being given the opportunity to learn something new everyday; no matter your age or skillset; and grow and develop to their own potential.
