John Turner, Chairman of the Parent Teacher Association - I have a daughter at the school, in Swans class. I started my career as a Vehicle Mechanic in the British Army. Now in my 24th year, I am in command of my own Workshop in Blandford. I am a keen squash player and enjoy long walks. My experience of command,leadership and organisation skills will be of benefit to this position.


Stuart Ashley, Vice Chairman - Firstly I am dad to very active twin children, both in Swans class, who have been at Kimpton for 4 years.  I am also a member of the Royal Air Force with a career spanning over 25 years and currently manage the development and procurement of specialist military equipment. In my spare time I am studying to complete my Masters dissertation and am training to complete a charity ultra event later this year.  I am looking forward to being part of the PTA team and helping the school.


Amy Hicks, Treasurer - As a new parent to the school I am excited to be part of the PTA. Having moved 7 times in 11 years as an army spouse I am looking forward to putting some roots down in the area by meeting other parents at future events and becoming part of the school community.  I enjoy running and I am training for my 5th marathon.


Ruth Bullock, Secretary - Hello. I’m Ruth Bullock. I have two children at Kimpton School and took on the role of Secretary last year. I enjoy being part of school life as previously I was a full time teacher. It is good spending time with other parents socialising and raising money for our school.
