I have been Rector of Henley in Arden since September 1989. All three of my children attended our local Primary School. I am delighted to serve as a permanent member of the Board of Governors. As you can imagine, I have a particular responsibility to promote the Christian ethos of our Church School and to further develop the links between our school and our parish church.
Governor - chair of finance & personnel committee
I have been a Governor at this school since 1992, a year after my family and I moved to Henley-in-Arden and both my children attended this school. During that time I was Treasurer of the PTA and as a Governor have held various positions including responsibilities for training and Special Educational Needs. I have held the posts of Chair of Governors, Vice Chair and am currently Chair of the Finance & Personnel Committee. As you can imagine after almost 25 years I have seen many changes in the school but what has remained constant is the care and commitment of staff and all those connected with school for all our children, their education and well-being.
I have been a parent governor since 2015, and have one child currently at the school. I work as a designer as part of Warwick University’s marketing group and run my own design business. I am also a Trustee and Secretary of Own Books, a small local charity that recycles books free of charge to children through schools and libraries. Outside school I’m a Beaver and Scout leader at the 1st Henley & Wootton Scout Troop.
I have been a Governor since my daughter started at the school and also since my wife started teaching here. I also sit on the Parish Council. I have my own small business helping young adults with Learning Disabilities to find employment. Outside of work I collect WW2 vehicles, support the Blues, and I am in the process of opening a small brewery!
Governor -Finance Committee
I have been resident in Henley since 1992 and both of my children attended this school.
Having recently retired from a career in finance, I joined the governing body towards the end of 2019, where I hope to use my skills and expertise in this field to the benefit of the school.
Clerk to the Governors
I work as a consultant to businesses in the postal industry (letters and parcels). I live in Barford and have four children at primary school (Wellesbourne), high school (Stratford) and college (Warwickshire College). I’ve been Clerk at Henley Primary since May 2016 (and I’m also Clerk at Henley School, since December 2014).
