I am a Co-Opted Governor at the school, and have been on the Governing body for the last 5 years. I am a Mechanical Engineer working at Rolls-Royce in Derby. I have had some previous Educational experience, and am a qualified Secondary School Teacher who taught Technology in a sixth form college for a couple of years in my early career. I am particularly keen to foster strong links between the local schools and the local Aerospace Industry, though the activities of local STEM (Science , Technology, Engineering & Maths) Ambassadors. I also bring active links to some of the local Junior sporting Clubs and Academies, and I currently have two children who attend Orchard.
