Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I have two sons, William who is in Year 3 at Bredon’s Hancock and Oliver who’s moved this year to Bredon Hill Academy after finishing at Bredon’s Hancock. I have lived in Bredon since 2013 and actively support clubs in the village. As a family we are active members of football, tennis, cricket and rugby clubs in the village and I also sit on the committee of Bredon Lawn Tennis Club. Spare time is generally spent either playing, watching or travelling to and from sporting activities over the weekends.


Why did you want to become a governor?

The primary reason for me is about giving something back to the school and using my skillset to help in any way I can. I’m a qualified auditor by trade and my background is in Financial Services. I work in internal audit and we provide independent assurance and consultative services to various governance committees. I sit on Risk and Audit Committee’s and conversant with working at either a strategic or tactical level. When the opportunity arose to be considered to be a Foundation Governor at my local school it seemed a good chance to support the school in achieving their strategic and tactical objectives. We are very fortunate to have a talented, committed pool of teachers with clear leadership and both my boys have benefitted from this. To help influence and shape the future of the school is an honour and one I enjoy.
