Donna Quarrell, has recently been elected as a parent Governor. Her son is currently in Year 2 at Redwood Academy.
Donna attended Redwood as a child and has always had a close link to the school through friends and family which is what made her want to become a Governor.
She is passionate about the school and not only the learning, but how parents & governors can understand and support school life better.

She spend lots of time with family & friends mostly revolving around her son’s football team where she is assistant welfare officer. Donna also spends time watching and playing football, and loves Formula 1, so has very busy, high energy weekends.

He is passionate about the future of the local community, and believes that a positive educational experience in the early years can have a huge impact on achievement and aspiration later in life.
Daniel hopes that his role as Governor provides a fantastic opportunity to use his educational and professional experience to help maintain and strengthen the very building blocks that formed the foundations of my own educational journey; which has led to higher education and a prosperous and enjoyable career as a business lead with a FTSE 100 company.
Maltby born and bred, I attended Hall Infants, Lilly Hall and Maltby Comprehensive/6th Form which enabled me to complete a Mechanical Engineering degree at Loughborough University. Since then I have worked as a Contract and then Process Engineer within two Sheffield Steel/Alloy Foundries.
Having recently become a parent last year, I am keen to both learn about the current education system, and also offer some of my time and problem solving skills to help our local schools teach the next generation as effectively as possible.
Outside of work I am a keen historian and genealogist. I also enjoy long distance running, walking in Derbyshire and fitting in as many holidays as I can
