Voices from Lloyds volunteers

David Brocklebank is a school governor at Holtsmere End Infant and Nursery School in Hertfordshire.

There are different things I believe I’ve been able to bring to the board, such as a broad understanding of IT, particularly given the maturity of understanding in schools. I’ve been able to talk through the finance elements, understand how school finances are structured and optimised, and provide support to help the school ensure they can manage the cost of living crisis. More widely, I also bring experience in areas such as stakeholder management and communication skills.

Governance has allowed me to practice my skills with different types of stakeholders and has allowed me to learn about the challenges facing different type of organisation.


Kish Aravinthan is a school governor at Southborough High School in Surrey.

Being a school governor is a rewarding experience and gives everyone an opportunity to contribute to the community. I would highly recommend it to others. I believe the school has benefitted by having a diverse set of members on its board that ensure the effective operation of the school. I sit on the Curriculum and Achievement Committee and support the work of this committee alongside my full governing board commitments.
