Mrs Emma Jukes
Chair of Governors
I have lived in Horley for over 20 years with my husband and we have 2 sons (one in Year 11, and one who will be joining Year 7 this coming September).
I have spent most of my career working in HR, Project Management and Business Transformation since I graduated from University, across several industries including the oil industry, civil engineering, fast moving consumer goods (FMGC) and most recently in IT for Microsoft as a Global Director of Strategy and Planning in the Cloud Operations and Innovation business.
Before joining the Governors in October 2020, I spent 4 ½ years volunteering as a Trustee and the Group Secretary to our one of our local Scouting Groups. Since taking up the Parent Governor role which I have enjoyed so much I recently undertook the Vice Chair role to become even more involved, I have learnt a lot about the passion of the staff and students at Oakwood and especially through my designated Senior Leadership Team Governor Link (we each focus on a particular area).
In the background I also volunteer as a Microsoft Accessibility Ambassador to showcase how tech can be used to ensure accessibility to all (especially in education) in schools, but also businesses as well.
Term Start - Oct 2020
Term End - Oct 2024
