Governor Bios


Lisa De Noronha 

I'm a local mum of two young children (5 & 2 years), having moved to Three Bridges in 2016. My son joined Three Bridges Primary in 2020 and my daughter will join in 2024. Knowing that our family life will be focused around the school for the next ten years, I wanted to become a governor to really get to know the school and how it ticks. I hope as a parent governor I can support the school as it builds on its achievements and work towards its long term goals and vision.

Professionally, I’m an ombudsman at the Financial Ombudsman Service. I specialise in resolving complex problems and communicating to a wide audience. I believe my skills and experience will enable me to be an effective governor. 



Shivani Patel

My name is Shivani Patel and I have recently been appointed as a parent Governor.

I am an artist by Profession. I have a daughter in Reception.

As a governor my goal is to support the school in creative ways to make education fun for children and to understand the school policies and curriculum.

I believe my skills and experience will enable me to be an effective Governor.



Nick Hilton

My name is Nick Hilton and have been a co-opted governor since February 2023 . During the 2023 summer term I was elected Vice Chair of the full Governing board. I work in a compliance role for a large Government department 

I recently moved back to Three Bridges and was actually a pupll at the lower site over 50 years ago ! I have experience of being a governor in the 1990s and was a Chair of governors at a school in Bewbush for over two years. I was also a councillor on Crawley Borough Council and West Sussex Council for a total of nine years which included sitting on the County Council's Education Committee .

Three Bridges Primary School is an important part of the local community and I am pleased to have an opportunity to give something back to the area I live in.  I have particular responsibilities for disadvantaged pupils and pupil premium.  I appreciate that Governors have an important role by working with the Headteacher and all staff to ensure that all pupils can thrive in a safe environment where they have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
