Welcome to the Governance Team

19 Oct 2020   |   Samantha Corbett   |   Wellspring Academy Trust

The Governance Team recently welcomed two new Governance Officers, in order to build capacity
to meet Wellspring’s requirements, as well as to fulfil the governance contracted services which we provide externally. Louise Bowman and Claire Storey both joined us on a part-time basis in early October. I’m sure that both Louise and Claire will be great additions to the team.


Louise Bowman

I am so excited to have the opportunity to become part of the Wellspring family. I have a varied background spanning Information Management, Catering Management and most recently, spent a number of years working in a mainstream secondary school within finance.

As soon as I made the move into education I knew I was on the right path and take huge pride in being able to support young people achieve. I am looking forward to working with the dedicated professionals at Wellspring through supporting the vital work of the Governance Team and getting to know all my new colleagues.




Claire Storey

I am so pleased to be a part of Wellspring Academy Trust and the Governance Team, particularly at such an exciting time. My background to date has been as a Team Manager, dealing with compliance and FCA regulations, recruitment and sales.

I haven’t worked in education before but I am looking forward to new challenges and to learning new skills. I have met some very inspiring people since joining and have been made to feel very welcome. Their passion and obvious commitment demonstrates that this is a great organisation to be part of. I look forward to my role as Clerk for a number of governing bodies in Leeds and Barnsley and to getting to know more people in the future
