Member Biographies

Rev Philip Johnson
Philip has been Vicar of Sleaford since 2013 and involved in school governance in both primary and secondary sectors for the past 20 years. He is passionate about facilitating school improvement and ensuring the highest quality educational provision for our children, knowing that children and young people are ambitious in all aspects of their life and develop in a safe environment that is concerned for the whole person. Prior to ordination, Philip was a Pathologist and taught tropical medicine in a Medical School. He is also Rural Dean of Lafford and a Chaplain in the RAuxAF.
Mr Robin Baker
Robin is a retired Chartered Engineer with 24 years’ service in the RAF followed by 12 years as a General Manager in support services to the military. He was a Governor at KSHS for 15 years including 4 as chair and he was a Governor at Pointon Cof E primary school from 2013-2020. In his spare time, Robin dabbles in photography, gardening and other things.
Mr Garry Titmus 
Following a sporty and hugely enjoyable education at Portsmouth Grammar School and a fascinating but less carefree few years at the Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth, Garry embarked on a 40 plus year naval career that included sea command, stints in both Naval and Defence staffs in Whitehall, years of training and teaching in staff colleges and even involvement in the world of NATO intelligence. He has served as governor of four schools in UK and abroad, chaired two PTAs and, is currently president of both national and local veterans’ associations. Elected as a local councillor in 2011 he was privileged to serve as chairman of STC and Sleaford’s mayor, standing down after six years. He is involved actively in a good handful of other organisations and associations and currently chairs the Sleaford Castle Heritage Group. When he has the time, he enjoys watching four of his sons, who were all educated at CGS, playing rugby and walking his rescued, native-born desert dog brought back after his 15 year service in Arabia.
