Mrs Kim Sohier

Staff governor

My name is Kim Sohier. I am the staff governor here at St George’s. This term of office, will be my third (although not consecutively)
I have worked at St George’s since April 2001. Currently, I have responsibility for delivering French across the whole school, which is a role that I really enjoy.
In addition to this teaching commitment, I am also the lead first aider, which, with so many staff and children, keeps me equally busy.
Outside of school, I am married with 2 grown up sons and a dog called Charlie. I love to swim, cook and walk. In addition to my schoolwork, I am also employed by 2 private swimming schools to teach swimming, from 3+ to 70+, beginners to triathletes.

Mrs Maureen Horton

Co-opted Governor

I first came to St George’s to work for the Lilleshal Company in the 1970’s and thought it a lovely place, so some years later when looking to start a day nursery for our son to get early intervention with his special needs, we came back to the area and found a disused chapel in Oakengates.  I ran Chapel Nursery there for 20 years whilst gaining a BA honours degree in early childhood studies and having a second son along the way.  Our own boys, now grown up and living independently, left us with an empty house. So we turned to fostering for Telford and Wrekin and have pretty much had a full house ever since. School days can be a difficult time for some children and families and I hope with support, to help make it better.
