First elected 14/12/2018; term ends 13/12/2022

I joined the Governor team in December 2018 as a parent governor with the hope of supporting the school, the children and its community as much as I can.  As any parent I would like my child’s experience of education to be the best that it possibly can.  As an educator for 18 years and in leadership for 14 years, I hope to use my wealth of experience to bring positive contributions. I am aware of the many challenges that schools and children face today and as a leader in the Creative Arts I often seek to support creative and collaborative solutions to enrich communities.

In 2010, I was awarded the UKLA John Downing Award for creative and innovative approaches to the teaching of English. I retired as a Deputy Head.

Our daughter started at Round Hill in 2015, and in 2016 I was asked to join the governing body as an associate member, becoming a full governor in the Autumn of the same year. My professional background is in structural and civil engineering consultancy and I currently run a practice with my business partners which is based in Beeston.
