Sheetal joined the Governing Body in May 2021.  She is a qualified accountant and worked for many years in the financial services sector, before taking a career break to raise her family.  She has lived in Harrow since 2002 and her children attend/attended local schools, so she is familiar with the area, community, and school setting.  She has a very keen interest in children and education, and volunteered for a number of activities at her children’s primary school, including helping pupils with reading, and actively participating in monthly parent forum meetings with the Head.  She is glad to be helping Belmont now in her role as governor.
