Please detail Date of appointment, Term of office and date of standing down (where applicable) and who you were appointed by.


Appointed as a Governor by the Governing Body of Brentwood School in June 2016.


Can you tell us something about yourself and what strengths you bring to the governing body? Include occupation and background if relevant.


I took early retirement from Trafford Council at the end of March 2016, having worked for Trafford for 25 years where I was a Senior Internal Auditor. I originally started my working life at Bowdon Council.


Do you have any relevant business or pecuniary interests? Are you a governor in another education institution?


As an Auditor at the Council I was the lead for schools within the Internal Audit Service for many years.


Do you have any material interests arising from relationships between governors or relationships between governors and school staff?




Why did you want to be a governor at Brentwood?


As my last school audit for Trafford I made the choice to visit Brentwood, having many happy memories of visiting the school on many occasions during my career. After the audit was concluded, I was asked by the Head Teacher if I would like to join the school as a Governor seeing I was now retiring from work!!


The new school premises are fantastic and a credit to everyone who was involved. Also the staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful. I am looking forward to being involved and spending more time at the school.

What impact has being a governor at Brentwood had on you?

Although it is early days for me, I am looking forward to playing an active role at the school.
