Sarah Beadsworth

Chair of the Local Governing & Safeguarding

I first joined the governing board of Baxter College in 2008 and became chairman when we joined the Severn Academies Educational Trust in the new year of 2017. I am also safeguarding link governor.

A journalist by profession, my two sons were educated at the school and I passionately believe in comprehensive education, where all children have the opportunity to thrive.

I was also a governor at St John’s CE Primary School for several years.

Rachael Turner

Parent Governor

I am a member of the Baxter College Parent Council, and enjoy supporting the school, meeting new people and helping where I can. My work ethic is very strong, with a clear view to meeting deadlines, following methodology communications, and ensuring completed work is done to the best of my abilities. I also have daughter at Baxter College in Year 10. 

I graduated from University with a B.Ed (Hons) Music, and then worked in Primary Schools. I left teaching, and in 2000 joined Severn Trent Water Ltd, where I have covered roles as a data inputter to Line Manager. I enjoy walking, reading, listening to music and spending time with family. I enjoy learning and undertaking new challenges, whilst meeting new people and sharing skills.
