I was appointed as a governor in 2013 after my daughter transferred to SHS in Y9. My son followed a year later and is now in Y8.
Prior to this I was a governor at Forge Valley school for 4 years and at Marlcliffe Primary for 8 years. I am currently vice-chair of the Student Progress & Welfare committee and SEN link governor.
I have worked for the Halifax (now Lloyds Banking Group) for 24 years, initially in branch and latterly in the mortgage department. Since 2003 I have been a Magistrate, sitting in both Adult & Family courts.
As an out of area family, we chose SHS for our daughter when she was looking to move schools as we were impressed by the ethos of the school and the commitment of the staff. I hope to ensure that all children who attend SHS have the opportunity to achieve their potential.
