Dr Anna Simmonds  

Chair of SSB

I have been Chair of the SSB at Chestnut Park since January 2016. I became a governor because I wanted to use my skills to support the school in helping all children reach their potential. I love being involved with Chestnut Park and am proud of all that's been achieved since opening in 2015.

I currently work for the Prevent Team and previously work for Croydon Council as an intelligence analyst in Children's Social Care. Prior to that I spent eight years as a neuroscientist at Imperial College London, conducting research into the neuro science of foreign language learning. Before that I worked as a languages teacher in West Sussex, Hampshire and Kent.
