I’m so pleased to be appointed as governor. Firstly, I have strong emotional ties with the school; I was a pupil here myself with many fond memories, I also attended in my teenage years for two weeks as my work placement! Secondly, I have two children within the school, and other family members also. This is my first role within a school environment, and as a governor, so it will certainly be a learning experience for me. In my work life I manage a Sales and Marketing team for a large manufacturing organisation. I hope to bring many transferrable skills to The Berkeley Academy.
