I joined the Lady Manners School Governing Body as a Parent Governor in November 2017. I have experience of governance from Longstone C of E Primary School where I chair a sub-committee and serve as Vice-Chair to the Board.
My background is in higher education and international development. I spent twenty years as an academic at the Department of Geography, University of Sheffield specialising in social policy and environmental change. Since leaving the university in 2017, I provide strategic support and expertise to Bakewell’s own international development charity, Village Aid.
I have two sons at Lady Manners School. I am keen to promote good relations between the Governing Body and parents and would like to contribute to ensuring that our school continues to strive to be a creative and enjoyable place for our children to learn. I feel strongly that state education should deliver a brilliant education for all children.
