    Partnership Governor

    After completing her BA Primary Education degree at Sheffield Hallam University, Miss Denton joined Maltby Lilly Hall Academy in 2015 as a Newly Qualified Teacher in Year 5. Since then, Miss Denton has taught across Key Stage 2 and is now the Lower Key Stage 2 Phase Leader. Miss Denton is passionate about ensuring all children have an exceptional education, that every child reaches their full potential and that they are fully prepared to be successful citizens in an ever-changing society.

    Miss Denton was elected staff governor in 2018 and was then re-elected in 2022. Being a staff governor gives Miss Denton a holistic view of the school and allows her to play a part in improving the education of all students in a different manner compared to her day-to-day role as Teacher and Leader.

local governance

  • Karen Maddison

    Staff Governor (Teacher)

  • Nicola Hollinger

    Staff Governor (Associate Professional))

    Nicola's professional skills, combined with her passion for making a difference to the lives of children at Maltby Manor, who need particular care and attention, make her an excellent choice for the role of Staff Governor. Being a Governor provides an opportunity for personal development, building skills and experience in areas such as project management, budgeting, and working as part of a leadership team. Nicola is prepared to contribute to discussions and offer challenge and support to the Principal, but is sensitive to the pressures under which they work. In addition, Nicola has an interest in education and the welfare of children whilst being willing to learn and attend relevant training.
