Vice Chair of Governors / Co-opted Governor
My teaching career commenced in September 1983 and concluded in August 2019 when I retired from my headship of a local secondary school. I have taught across the 11-18 age, ability and socio-economic range in seven schools, three in the Independent and four in the State sector.
I have a Masters in Business Administration (Educational Management ) and a keen interest in ongoing school improvement and how to manage that process. I am also Chair of the Governing Body of a Cheshire primary school and a Governor in a Sixth Form College. I can thereby offer experience and understanding of governance at primary, secondary and post-16, as well as knowledge and understanding of academisation, accountability processes, strategic planning and translating policy into practical reality, working with and engaging a variety of stakeholders in the local and wider community.
