Donna Barnes

I joined the governing body in September 2020 as a foundation governor with a strong Christian background and belief with a desire to uphold the ethos, values and morals that the school represents. I am married and have two children both of whom have attended William Law , with one as a current pupil. I am originally from Peterborough and returned after many years away in 2012 .

Upon returning my faith has led me to become a Parochial Church Council member at All Saints, Paston where I take an active role in the church’s children and youth activities. In my professional life, I am head of Performing Arts at a Drama School. Alongside this I teach music and drama in schools extensively across the city.

This follows a lengthy career as a musical theatre actress in the West end. I hope to use my many years of teaching and performing experience to help the children of William Law grow in confidence as well as faith. To help them thrive as they graduate through their educational journey and achieve their best potential.
