I retired from a career in the Army in early 2011 and volunteered to join the Governing Body. I have been the Chair since September 2012.
Late in my career I was involved with Service Children's Education and as Chair of the Local Safeguarding Children Board for British Forces Germany. I was a budget holder and gained lots of experience in committees. With this background I can ensure the school makes the most appropriate and efficient use of its resources,and I have knowledge to apply to the Child Protection policy in the school.
In February 2016 I was delighted to be designated as a National Leader of Governance; this is a role where I work with other schools who may need support for their Governing Body.
