Hester Dunstan-Lee

Co-Chair & Parent Governor - Curriculum Committee

My name is Hester and I have lived in Balcombe for 8 years.  Alex and I have 4 children - Ben, Thomas, Emma and Lizzie attend the school and are all very happy there.  I have been a governor for 4 years now and am always impressed by the dedication and enthusiasm of teachers and staff.  As a governor, I enjoy the greater insight it gives me into my children's education and I am keen to support Mrs Millbanks and her staff as they strive to develop the opportunities available  for all children at the school. I am the SEND governor and I sit on both the Curriculum and Finance & Staffing Committees.

Outside of school, I am a solicitor and I work part-time as in-house counsel at a major national charity.  Prior to becoming a governor, I was Co-Chair of the Tiggers Pre-School management committee.
