Strategic Governance Group (SGG)

Al Bateen Academy’s Strategic Governance Group (SGG) is established to provide consultation and support in relation to strategic leadership of the school. The school, Aldar Academies and the SGG will work collaboratively, and in partnership, to develop a positive working relationship, for the benefit of all students, and in recognition that this partnership is pivotal to the success of Al Bateen Academy in achieving its School Aims. 

The Parent/Community Governors are, as follows:

Mr. Joseph Fowler (Parent Governor)
I am a British and have worked for a satellite communications company in Abu Dhabi since 2009. Both of my children attend Al Bateen Academy. I am greatly looking forward to another year as a parent governor, helping to ensure our magnificent Al Bateen students feel encouraged, motivated, and supported in all of their efforts.

Mr. Peter Hellyer (Community Governor)
Originally British but now a UAE citizen, I came to Abu Dhabi in 1975. Head of the English Service of the Emirates News Agency, WAM, I have also published books on the country’s archaeology and environment. I was awarded the Abu Dhabi Medal in 2014. As Governor and parent, I hope to contribute to development of the school’s excellence in all fields. 

Mr. Robin Stickells (Parent Governor)
It is a privilege to serve the Al Bateen community as a member of the Strategic Governance Group. I have a broad range of experience, having begun my career as a secondary school teacher before moving into contract management, property management and, most recently, Customer Happiness and Customer Experience consulting. I hope to apply my skills and experience to this role. I am a family man and am privileged to be the father of four fantastic children. Two are at Al Bateen and two are future Al Bateen students, currently at Al Mamoura. I look forward to the year to come as an opportunity to be involved and contribute to the long term success of Al Bateen.

Dr Monique Taylor (Parent Governor)
I am the Campus Dean and Executive Director of NYIT-Abu Dhabi, the local campus of a US-based university. Over the past 15 years I have lived and worked in the Middle East, Latin America and Asia where I was most recently an elected board member at the Nanjing International School in China. I have a daughter at Al Bateen Academy. My family and I are excited to be in Abu Dhabi and appreciate the academically rigorous and welcoming environment of Al Bateen. As a parent governor, I look forward to supporting the school in its next strategic initiatives.
