Meet our PTA Committee 

Andrew Chambers – Chairperson

“Hello! I am excited to step into the Chair role and look forward to working with the group on lots of exciting things over the coming months.
I have three children. My eldest two children, Charlie and Brooke are both at a local secondary school and my youngest son Jack is now in year 5.
I am the Company Director and bulk haulage long distance lorry driver of a local family business which has been established for over 65 years.
My children are the fourth generation of the Chambers family to attend Yanwath School and I am passionate to help the school continue to be the success it always has been.”


Holly Housby – Social Media & Advertising

Hello, I’m Holly. Mummy of three, two of whom already attend our wonderful school, and the third won’t be too far behind them in joining team Yanwath! I joke that I’m Yanwath’s No1 fan, as having visited every single school in the area when making my selection, we actually chose to commute from Skelton to attend what I think is the best primary around. So it felt very natural to join the PTA to support where I can. My most recent role was that of Marketing Director, so I’m hoping I can apply all of my marketing and event experience to raise plenty of funds for the school.


Zoë Hallington – Secretary

“After many years living abroad, I returned to my native Cumbria in 2019 and continue to work as a freelance editor and translator. At Yanwath, my daughter Nina has found a fantastically warm and inspiring community and I am very happy to have the chance to help support the school through the PTA”.


Rachael Kelly – Treasurer 

“I have two children at Yanwath, Charlotte in Year 4 and Jessica in Reception. We live in Penrith and I work in local government.  I have re-joined the PTA after some time out, and I am really looking forward to working with school and its community again”.


Nicola Chambers – Community Engagement 

“I now just one of my three children at Yanwath, after my eldest two have gone off to secondary. Jack, my youngest, is in year 5. We live locally in Tirril and I work as a hairdresser in Penrith. I have been part of the PTA for a few years now and volunteered to help in school with reading. I am really looking forward to continuing to work with school and its community”.


Nic Pearce – Community Engagement 

“Originally from Essex, I moved to Penrith with my family a couple of years ago, my two children attend and love Yanwath. I have lots of ideas and enthusiasm to assist with raising money for the school and have already made some links with local businesses”.


Sarah Glover – Pre-Loved Uniform


I’m Sarah. I’ve joined the PTA to get to know the school and to help out wherever I can. My daughter has just started reception and I have a one year old.

As a big advocate of preloved clothes, shoes, toys…. most things, I will be very happy looking after the pre-loved uniform.


Matthew Crouch – Early Years Lead at Yanwath Primary School (School Representative)

“I studied at Sheffield Hallam University for three years, before starting at Yanwath in September 2017. I have been at Yanwath for seven years now and have enjoyed watching the school grow from strength to strength.

I have a passion for social media and using it to gain exposure, resources and opportunities for our school”.


We still have lots of posts within the PTA that need filled, Vice Chair, Vice Treasurer, Newsletter Editor and Year Group Reps. If you are interested, please contact Andrew Chambers or Mrs Davies.
There is a wider group of parents from across the school who have expressed an interest in helping the PTA and there is now a WhatsApp Group. Again, if you would like added into the group please speak to any of the above members.
