Governor Biographies


Stephen Bailey

I am a teacher of Theology and Philosophy at Westminster School and an Assistant Housemaster in one of the boarding houses. I am married with a young daughter and have taught in the secondary sector and for two years in the Catholic state secondary sector school Chaplaincy. I hold a degree in Law, a Masters in Theology and a PEGCE in Religious Studies from Cambridge University, the Maryvale Institute and Oxford University, respectively. I am a member of the Westminster Cathedral Parish. In my free time I enjoy football, cycling, running and other outdoor activities.


Shaun Beadsworth (Vice Chair)

As a married father with one daughter I have lived in the local community for over twenty years, originating from nearby Paddington where I attended local Catholic primary and secondary schools. My career spans thirty years of financial and contract management within the construction industry. I have broad interests which include anything mechanical, military history and of course our wonderful school, St Vincent’s.



Roberto Brianti

I was born in Hammersmith and I have lived in West London all my life and in Ealing for the last ten years. I attended St Mary’s Catholic Primary and the London Oratory Schools and am a Chartered Accountant in practice in London as a partner. I am married with two children (twin boys) currently at St Vincent’s. In my spare time I enjoy football and walking our dog and have a passion for skiing.



Roberto Geada



Annette Ireland

I was born in Hammersmith and I have lived in West London for most of my life. I attend St Aidan’s RC Church in East Acton and am a Civil Servant at the Department for Education (DfE). I have been a Civil Servant in various departments for thirty-three years. I am married and have two children (a son and daughter) and both my children have attended Catholic schools in Hammersmith & Fulham. In my spare time I like reading, walking and gardening.



Fr Fergal Maguire

I am the Parish Priest at St Aidan’s and Our Lady of Lourdes, Acton - parishes which both serve the school. I am also the school’s chaplain.



Karl McCloskey

I am a serving Principal of an all-through Catholic School for girls from the ages of 2.5 to 18 years. I have thirteen years substantive experience of teaching in Catholic schools in the Diocese of Westminster prior to taking up my current leadership position. I have experience as a Diocesan Section 48 Validator and a School’s Inspector with ISI. I have a long-standing connection, affinity and involvement with St Vincent’s Catholic Primary School as both my wife and youngest children attended as pupils.



Maggie Pound (Chair)

I have lived in Ealing for many years. I trained as a nurse and am married with two children. I am also a Magistrate, in both adult and youth court. I have been a Governor for approximately 15 years and am a Foundation Governor at two other Catholic schools in Ealing and have served as both Chair and Vice-Chair. I am a National Leader of Governance (NLG) and have mentored/supported new Chairs of Governors and Governing Bodies within the Diocese and Local Authority.



Trudy Rowley



Robina Sorohan

I have been a parent at St. Vincent’s for the past five years, with children currently in years 1, 3 and 5. During that time I have been involved in the PTA and served as Chairperson for the last three years. Part of this role involved working closely with the school staff and leadership team, which has given me an insight into the responsibilities of the Governing Body and the challenges faced. In my professional career, I am Financial Controller for a local estate agent and prior to that spent 15 years working with accountancy firms, so will be able to draw on that knowledge and experience to support the Governing Body as required.
