Linda Ulrich

Linda Ulrich (Foundation Governor, PCC)

I am a Londoner, and have been a teacher (of Geography and English Language) for over 35 years: in Mexico, Switzerland and now Camden. I have always been very interested in education, inclusion and inter-faith relationships, and hope to promote these values in St Barnabas school. I am presently Churchwarden of St Barnabas Church, and I live in the area.
I am honoured to be one of the governors of the school, and very proud of what the school has achieved.

Ann Townshend (Headteacher, Ex-officio)
I was appointed as Headteacher at St Barnabas' School in 2006. I have taught in London primary schools for over twenty five years and, before coming to St Barnabas', worked as a local authority consultant, supporting colleagues in schools throughout Westminster to develop teaching and learning in primary schools. In recent years, St Barnabas' School has seen a number of changes, including improvements to the site to create new classrooms and the opening of a Nursery Class in 2015.
I live locally and am active on a number of local committees, including the Parochial Church Council. I have recently been appointed as Churchwarden at St Barnabas' Church, alongside Linda Ulrich.
