Chair of Governors

Mrs Hilary Baker, Chair of Governors


I was elected as a parent governor in September 2010 and have been Chair since September 2011. 

I continue to enjoy working with pupils, parents, staff and governors to take the school forward into a successful and rewarding future for all involved. 


Please feel free to contact me through the school or Web Page. 


I have been living just outside Usk for over 20 years with my husband.  We have and 2 children, Matthew and Sophie, who are both at Caerleon now after going through Usk from Reception onwards.

Our family pastimes include walking, pig keeping and many sports – I actually still manage to play hockey for Chepstow Ladies Hockey Club although it is taking longer to recover after each match !  I work for Airbus at Filton on the edge of Bristol which means a transnational daily commute and also means I miss most of the opportunities to meet people during the school day.


I do support PTFA events when I can and have been found wielding the paint brushes while applying various face paints at the various fairs for many years ... I became a parent governor in the first place because I was concerned that opportunities to make the most of communications between the school and all stakeholders were not always taken – just in time to get fully involved in the inspection and subsequent action planning .... I believe the communication to, and involvement of, all stakeholders has improved dramatically over the last few years, hopefully it will continue to do so.
