I joined the Governor team at Widewell in the spring of 2014 as a co-opted Governor to review Financial Management at the school.

I soon recognised that the governor & staff teams had real & genuine commitment to improving the educational offering to pupils from the Widewell community.

It was this ethos which prompted me to formally join the team at the school.

In the autumn of 2015, I was honoured to be asked to become chair of Governors in succession to Patrick Dollard who had lead the school through a challenging period.

I am rapidly learning that management in the education sector is an ever changing, challenging but rewarding experience.

Stakeholders can be assured that I will continue to work for the best interests of present & future pupils at the school.
