I became a foundation governor in 1997 and have been Chair of Governors since 2001, a role that is both challenging and rewarding. I was educated at Firth Park Grammar School in Sheffield, and read physics at Wadham College, Oxford.
Currently, I am Managing Director of CODEL International, a company based in Bakewell, which manufactures equipment for monitoring atmospheric pollution. This role involves considerable travel around the world. Having been fortunate enough to receive a first class state education I wish to do whatever I can to ensure that current and future generations have those same opportunities.
