I have been involved with school governance for 20 years as Chair within both the Primary and Secondary sectors, covering all governance aspects including strategic direction, appointment of Head Teachers, acquisition, construction and creation of a new Primary School. I also work closely with Bromley LEA. I continue to Chair the local Governing Body at The Ravensbourne School. I was awarded NLG (National Leader of Governance) three years ago, which has allowed me to help and review other local schools’ governing bodies.
I worked with the CEO to build E21C from inception, developing its capacity, vision and structure. I Chair the Trust and am currently involved with its growth, as new schools join. What most excites me about the Trust is the effect we can have on each child within it, and the fact that at its core we cater for children of all abilities from our local community to genuinely make sure we give them the chance to be “the best they can be”.
When I’m not working for the Trust, I am a Director within Proctors Estate Agents, involved with all aspects of running a small business.
