Outside of work
I have been Chair of Governors of West Kidlington Primary School since it joined The White Horse Federation in May 2017, having worked with the school in the previous year chairing its IEB. I was elected chair of TWHF Chairs group in July 2018.
I trained and worked as a Primary teacher before working for over 20 years in Local Education Authorities. I am now an independent Education Consultant working mainly with academy trusts and school governors to develop high quality school management and leadership.
I have always been supportive of schools offering the broadest possible curriculum to give children and young people rich experiences during their school life. As a result I am also Chair of a recently established Trust running an Outdoor Education Centre near Oxford.
