Wykeham Primary School

Committed to Excellence, Equality and Enjoyment


I have been a governor at Wykeham School for many years and am currently the Co-chair of Governors. My main area of responsibility is Literacy and I meet the Literacy Subject Leaders regularly. As well as attending the meetings, I enjoy visiting the school - especially attending the Friday assemblies, which are always very interesting, thought-provoking and above all enjoyable.

I retired from full-time work a few years ago. I started as a teacher and then worked for Brent and Camden advising schools and teachers, with a particular focus on History, Geography and RE. I now have more time to travel to different countries. I also enjoy sport, walking, reading and music.

My name is Barbara Amponsah-Abedi and I was officially appointed as a Local Authority Governor for Wykeham Primary in November 2012. I am very passionate about education and learning and strongly believe in every child having access to a high standard of education.

I currently work as Qualifications and Assessment Manager for the Institute of Risk Management where I have been for almost 6 years. Prior to that I worked for Edexcel (now known as Pearson Education). I’m married with a four year old son and a daughter. I’ve recently completed my Masters degree in Educational Assessment and I look forward to working with the rest of the Governing team and Wykeham Primary in taking the school from strength to strength.

Hello everyone. My name is Yemi Ogundimu. I have been a governor at Wykeham Primary School for a long time. Over the years I have seen the confidence of our children mature so much that I am always amazed of their development. This confidence can be seen during the school assemblies, demonstrating how the children taking pride in what they do. It shows their responsibilities and commitment to being unique individuals.

The high results are evidence of the teachers’ efforts and time invested into the children in their care. I can only say that I am so grateful that I have the privilege to be part of this community over the years.

Thank you.


I am a Staff Governor for the Curriculum and Personnel Sub-Committee and have worked at Wykeham for the past six years as a teacher in year one and in year three. In addition, I am the subject leader for PSHCE and RE.

Since my election as a governor in 2011, I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to positively contribute towards the development of the school. It is rewarding and fascinating to be a part of the leadership side of the school! It has been an immensely rewarding and satisfying experience to see and be part of Wykeham's achievement.

In my spare time, I enjoy researching, especially about the education sector and watching documentaries to continue to my professional development. 

My name is Yvonne Adams, and I have recently become a parent governor at Wykeham primary School. I have a daughter who is in reception and goes to the school. I also attended Wykeham primary school as a child.

 I graduated from university in November 2012, with a Law Degree. I have a keen interest in education, as well as laws and processes. I like to keep up to date with current affairs. 

My name is Jenni Jemmott-Brown. I am a Parent Governor and have two children. Both my children have achieved well at Wykenham and any needs they have had have been met. I live in Neasden and have done so for the past twelve years. I try hard to keep up with events happening within the community and have attended many governor meetings and courses, both on line and at various centres, to assist me in my role. Currently I am also on the School Curriculum committee.

My work background is mainly catering and I have built this up over sixteen years. Now I am self-employed and teach roller skating to all ages. In my spare time I do taekwando and rock climbing. I am always happy to hear from parents about school issues - good or bad.
