Chair / Co-opted Governor

Adam Hodgess

Staff Governor

I have been a member of staff at Lipson since 2011 and during this time has served as Learning Technology Manager and now Data, Systems and Timetable Manager. 

I've now worked within Plymouth schools for the past 20 years, thirteen of those at Lipson. My role gives me a unique opportunity to work with all departments throughout the Academy in both a curriculum and administrative capacity. It is this wider insight that I feel gives me the breadth & depth of knowledge and diverse contact to represent the best interests of our school and support the aims and values of the wider MAT. 

I am passionate about the development of our whole school and that of the wider community. As a past student of Lipson I feel a great sense of pride and respect for the incredible journey Lipson has taken and for the continued achievements it will have as part of the Ted Wragg MAT.

I am a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute.

Kevin Bishop

Co-opted Governor

My connection dates back to September 2015 when my daughter joined Lipson. This then gave me an insight into how the school worked.

I work for the NHS and have a broad range of knowledge and skills that I can use to help the school with it's future plans.

I was very keen to be involved to help the school provide the best opportunities and experiences for all pupils. 

Lucie Garland

Co-opted Governor

I am a Lipson alumna, having been a student here from 1999 to 2006. After living, studying and working in Oxfordshire for 11 years, I returned to Plymouth and was keen to find an opportunity to give back to a school which had such a positive impact on my life.

I am in my sixth year of Primary teaching, and am passionate about all children and young people having access to an engaging and inspiring education. My previous experience as a Governor of a Primary School, Secondary Academy and University, as well as a Trustee of a Students' Union, has given me a wide range of experience in the oversight of education from nursery to postgraduate level.

Throughout my own experience as a student at Lipson I always appreciated the holistic approach to learning; valuing life skills and building character just as highly as formal qualifications, and encouraging every student to achieve their potential. The ongoing journey of Lipson and its wider community has not strayed from this course, and now as a Governor I feel privileged to be able to support and challenge the school as this journey continues.

Ex-Officio

Stuart Koehler-Lewis

Co-opted Governor

I have lived in Plymouth since coming here to study at the university in 1996.  I lived in Lipson Vale for a few years.  I have been on the Governing Body at Lipson since November 2020.

I am a serving Senior Deputy Headteacher at another secondary school in the city.  My role is to have oversight of the curriculum but this broad remit sees me have involvement in many areas of the school, enabling me to understand the challenges and opportunities that a secondary school has. 

I am keen and pleased to be able to bring my experience as a senior leader of a secondary school to the Governing Body at Lipson.  The relationship has been mutually beneficial and I believe strongly in the role that Lipson can play in its community.

I am a member of The Association of School and College Leaders - ASCL
