Staff Governor - Head Teacher

Tonya Hill


I am the Headteacher at New Fosseway. I am a firm believer that all children and young people can achieve great things, no matter their starting points. I have experience of leadership in both mainstream and special education and understand the value of inclusive education for all. 

Outside of work, I am a huge fan of all things sci-fi and fantasy, and it is my hope that my son will grow up loving Harry Potter and Star Wars as much as me!

I am 1 of the assistant heads here at New Fosseway.  I have worked at the school since 2005 as a class teacher.  I have previously been the staff governor.  In my personal life I am the mother of 3 boys; 1 who has autism and a grandmother. 

Co-opted Governor 

Claire Furneaux (parent at New Fosseway)

I have been a governor at New Fosseway since October 2016 after my daughter joined the school the previous month.  I am very keen on being part of the school team and doing my part to help support the staff and pupils to achieve the very best possible during their time at New Fosseway.  My husband and I ran a multimedia company for 10 years before specialising in the investigation of computer fraud.  I am currently serving as Health and Safety Governor and look forward to seeing the school continue to improve and work together with the wider community to achieve an outstanding provision.  I'm a keen, but not very productive gardener and spend a lot of time doing volunteer work in the community.
