Early Years (Chair), SEN
A former senior teacher and parent at St. Thomas Garnet’s and a trustee since 2008. I maintain a committed interest in education and am actively involved in all aspects of community work and parish life.
I have been a trustee since 2007 and enjoy this role. I retired from the NHS after 42 years of service. My grandsons attended this school and my granddaughter is currently in J2.
I am a teacher at St Peters. I became a trustee as I wanted to help shape the future of St Thomas Garnets so that it is as good for tomorrow’s students as it has been for my children. I am inspired by those who have accomplished great things often starting at a disadvantage. When I am not working I like to chill out with my family and close friends and then work it all off in the gym.
