The Trustees of Seva School

Our full board of Trustees meet six times per year. There are two sub-committees that report to the full Trust body. These are:

  1. Finance, Audit & Buildings Committee (FAB).
  2. Personnel, Performance & Safeguarding Committee (PPS).

Each of the committees are led by an elected chair from the board of trustees. Others make up the membership of these committees according to their skills and experience. Here follows an overview of the trustees of Seva School.

Mr Amarjit Basra – Chair of Trustees

I have been privileged to have been involved with the Seva School project from its inception. I am passionate about the school, its vision and our commitment to deliver excellent educational experience. I have a wide ranging experience in private sector and look to bring best practice and industry experience to my role as a trustee in the Finance, Audit and Building committee.

Mr Mandeep Singh Sahota – Trustee

I am a Trustee for Seva School and sit on the Finance Audit and Buildings Committee. I am FFA,FCCA trained with a local firm of accountants and qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1992. I joined the family accountancy business in 1993 becoming a Director and subsequently building a twenty plus staff member team and a strong client base. I am married with two children and live in an extended family with my elderly parents. I have been to Music School and was in charge at the Ramgarhia Sikh Temple, providing instrumental and vocal training to children and adults. I am a qualified and active Tabla player and accompany many artists in live performances. I am a food fanatic and enjoy socialising with family and friends. I have a passion for classic cars and enjoy attending motor shows and have a keen interest to build my car collection.

Dr Amarjit Johal – Joint Vice Chair of Trustees

I am a ‘Parent Governor’ and member of the Personnel, Performance and Safeguarding Committee. I also have responsibility for Health and Safety and am currently the link trustee for personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education at Seva School. Since my daughter joined Seva School, I have been impressed by the dedication of staff in providing a stimulating and ambitious learning environment. There are many challenges ahead, but given how much has been achieved over the last year, I am confident that Seva will be an outstanding school. I am a GP living and working in Coventry. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. For recreation, I enjoy reading, watching movies and travel. I am also involved in charitable work.

Mr Sunny Singh Heer – Joint Vice Chair of Trustees

Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ka Fateh, my name is Sunny Singh Heer and I am a trustee on the Finance, Audit & Buildings Committee. I am a Chartered Accountant and when I first heard about plans to open Seva School, I was keen to volunteer and participate my Seva by putting my skills and knowledge to good use, and assist the School on its journey. I think it is fair to say it has definitely been a journey so far, one that has been thoroughly enjoyable and very rewarding. Challenging the finances, providing support, developing processes and having a brain ache over the figures has definitely been worth it, especially when you walk through the new School premises and are taken aback by the friendly warm feeling from both staff and the children. Away from work and from supporting Seva School, I am a keen fitness fanatic. In recent years I have managed to complete the Coventry Half Marathon on 3 occasions and I hope to be successful and enter the London Marathon in 2017. Having a very young family I try to cram in as much into the weekend as possible with my wife and little ones. From playing in the park, to swimming, regular attendance at Coventry City Football Club home matches and enjoying the delights of different foods of the world. I feel it is very important to keep that tight family unit and I thoroughly enjoy catching up with all family members in my spare time. I look forward on continuing on this exciting journey with Seva School that we are all involved in.

Mrs Hardeep Kaur Marwaha – Trustee

I was appointed as a Trustee on 27 April 2017 to join the Personnel, Performance and Safeguarding Committee. I am delighted with this opportunity to serve the parents, community and children of Seva School. I am a Solicitor and have worked in-house for several multi-million pound organisations, providing legal and pragmatic advice to senior stakeholders, and helping businesses achieve their strategic objectives and commercial goals against a backdrop of regulatory environments. As a mother of three wonderful children, two of which currently attend the school, I strongly believe in the spirit and values of Seva School. I look forward to working with my fellow trustees and the leadership team to ensure our children receive a very high standard of education, and that every child is nurtured to achieve its full potential both in school and beyond.
