Marc Sneddon - Parent Governor

First elected 1/08/2016; Term ends 31/7/2020

I have lived in Beeston for over 8 years with my wife. We have three children two of which are in year 2&3 at Roundhill. I became a parent governor in 2016 predominantly to help shape and contribute further to the success and improvement of the school.

Professionally I lead a team in procurement and supply chain for a large PLC based in London and look forward to working with the schools and governorship in using my skills and experience.


Emilie Carr - Parent Governor

Simon Plummer - Parent Governor 

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

I have lived in Beeston all of my life except for going to University in Leicester. My wife and I have one child (in Round Hill) with another on the way. I volunteered as Parent Governor early 2019 as I rarely had the opportunity to meet other parents at the school gates or contribute in other ways. This was my opportunity to give something back by sharing experience and skills to the benefit of the school and its Pupils – not just now but for the future.

My wife and I run a company that provides consultancy in Cyber Security, Data Protection, Creative/digital Design and Account Management, this broad range of topics brings a wealth of experience that enables me to be inquisitive, supportive and raise challenges when necessary

Hilary Craik - Local Authority Governor

First appointed (LA governor) 10/3/2011; Term ends 10/12/2020

I have lived in Nottinghamshire for the whole of my life. I work as an independent education consultant, this includes leadership development, succession planning and supporting schools. Before this, I worked in Nottinghamshire for 34 years and during that time I was a Headteacher and a School Improvement Adviser.  I am a Director on the Multi Academy Trust Board for the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham.

I first came to Nottingham in 1992 to study Civil Engineering and after finishing my degree moved to Beeston.  After an eight year stint in London I moved back to Beeston in 2007 with my wife, Helen. 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.

With my experience in business and expertise in the built environment I hope to help the school with any issues relating to the maintenance and repair of the premises and grounds and to assist with matters relating to general business.
