 Professional Background

 

 

 

 

 

After leaving Poole Grammar School, I worked in Sales and marketing for over 20 years. However, after turning 40, I decided that I was travelling too much, wanted to spend more time with my family and needed a change of direction. I set up my own gardening business which ran successfully for 4 years. Then an opportunity came up to become Site Manager in a Poole school, so I sold the business and started on a new career path. Staying there for 9 years, and learning the ropes as it were, I then moved to Yarrells School in Upton, before eventually ending up at Wimborne First School.

 

Motivation for Becoming a Governor

 

 

 

 

 

I think to be a good member of staff in schools you have to love the school. I have quickly come to love this school, and wanted to help shape it to reach its maximum potential for educating the young people of Wimborne and surrounding areas. With the move to the new premises we have a perfect opportunity at the moment to develop that site to be “a school of the future”. The fabric of the building and equipment will give us the potential to be one of the best schools in the area. We have to ensure we don’t miss the opportunity by continuing with, and developing our excellent teaching and curriculum.
