I grew up in Reigate and moved back to Oxted 12 years ago. I became a Governor at de Stafford in June 2011. I have a law degree and then qualified as a Chartered Surveyor, specialising in landlord and tenant. I have worked extensively in private practice in London and locally, in the public sector in Hertfordshire, as a facilities and property manager and for a time in Jersey. Until recently I was an Operations Director by a FTSE100 property company in London, but am now starting a new career as a Bursar of a local primary school. In my spare time I have a small dog and a large horse.  
Mrs Alison Etheridge SSB Member

I have lived in Caterham since 1997 and have two children, both of whom attended de Stafford.  My son is now at university and my daughter is at Reigate College.  Following a 4 year term as a Governor at a local infant school, I became a Governor at de Stafford in June 2011, and Chair in January 2015.  I have a degree in Psychology and undertook further studies in Human Resources to become a chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.  My career was initially in the voluntary sector, working with a housing association for older people and then a disability charity.  In 2008 I became self-employed, helping companies with a variety of HR requirements such as reorganisations, employee relations issues, and mediation.
