Adrian Papprill  



Raised in Manchester, I moved to London in 1997 and have lived in Harlesden, Willesden and now Harrow. I joined Mitchell Brook’s Governing Board in 2004, so have seen many changes to the school over this time. 


I am a finance professional, working in Shepherd’s Bush for a large telecoms company. My wife Jennie & I travelled widely in our younger days and we still regularly visit our friends & relatives in Australia & New Zealand. The whole family enjoy both football and rugby, but these days the only time I get to kick a ball is in the park with my two young daughters. 


Amit Varsani   



Amit was recently appointed a co opted Governor in June 2018. He is a survey scripting manager with extensive knowledge and experience in handling data. Amit  lived locally for 37 years in Harlesden and only recently moved to Stanmore. He sees being able to help govern a school in the area he was born and raised in as a wonderful opportunity.


Jennifer Bartley



Jennifer became a parent governor in 2019.

She has lived locally for 24 years and currently works in a law firm and her child attends Mitchell Brook. Jennifer believes that the skills she uses in her daily legal work including her awareness of confidentiality issues, ability to communicate effectively along with her enthusiasm to assist the current governors in their commitment to Mitchell Brook Primary School allow her add value to the governing body.
