James Schotler

Co-opted Governor

I am a chartered surveyor and the Group Head of Property for a large truck, van and car retailer and I have previously worked at a number of large national retail organisations in senior property roles. In my current role, I am responsible for all elements of the property portfolio of the company across the UK including acquisitions, new build developments, rent reviews, lease renewals and general asset management of the 100+ site portfolio.

I am happily married with two young daughters, one of which is currently studying at the school. 

I have been recently elected as a ‘Co-opted Governor’ for Orchard and I am looking forward to assisting the school by utilizing my business related experience to ensure that we, as a Governing body, are striving to provide the best possible start in education for all of the children attending Orchard.
