Akhtar Ahamed - CHAIR OF GOVERNORS
My son has just started Reception class at Campton Lower (2019). I want to be a governor with the drive to further help the school navigate the next period. I am currently Head of Sales & Marketing at a software company, whilst also Managing Director of the Mauritian subsidiary. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling to different corners of the world and seeing different cultures. I have been a Central Bedfordshire resident since 2004 and am looking forward to really help everyone at the school.

My wife and I moved to Campton in April 2018, and I became an Associate Governor at the school here in 2019. We have lived in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire since the 1970s, when I worked at British Aerospace Hatfield as a ‘Wind Tunnel Aerodynamicist’, and our two daughters attended school in Great Offley. After BAe, I did a Postgraduate Certificate of Education, and then taught mathematics and computing at a Secondary School in Harpenden before moving into the Computer Industry, where I spent the next 27 years as a software developer, Project Manager and then Technical Director of a company in Cambridge specialising in computer-based training. I was a Governor of the primary school in Whitwell, Herts; one of my activities there was to manage the project to install a new boiler and hot water system. My particular interests are therefore in the teaching of maths, science and computing, but I am keen to be involved in many other aspects of the school – time permitting … In my spare time, I run a website telling the stories of pre-war and civilian WW2 (Air Transport Auxiliary) pilots, and I have also been a volunteer at Shuttleworth Aircraft Museum, helping to restore old aeroplanes. I also enjoy walking, music, travelling, and DIY.
Sarah Fraher - PRINCIPAL
SARAH FRAHER – PRINCIPAL - GOVERNOR I have worked as a class teacher at Campton Lower since 2006 and became a staff governor for the second time in April 2018. During my time at Campton I have taught pupils in Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 and my main priority has always been to provide every child with the best possible educational outcomes. This includes ensuring every pupil is treated as an individual and that their social and emotional needs are met.
