Prior to my early retirement in December 2015 I was a Director of John Moores (Bristol) Ltd, a SME owned by Systems Group UK Ltd. My primary role was managing the Bristol operation requiring me to work with clients from project conception to completion whilst ensuring the business operated in a safe, legal and financially prudent way. I am a self-motivated person with more than 30 years management experience in facilities and project management and bring to the table my experience and expertise in financial planning and control, health, safety and environmental risk management, problem solving skills and man management skills.
I applied to and was elected as a Parent Governor at Priory in November 2000 when my son started at the school. I served a 4 year term as a Parent Governor and have since remained as a Co-opted Governor. I am currently Chair of the Academy Council and Chair of the Business and Site Committee.
With the dedication of the staff supported by the Academy Council, Priory is now an OFSTED Outstanding school and one of the best performing schools not only in the local area but nationally, a trend that we wish to maintain. I continue to offer my support to the school not only as a Academy member but as a Trustee of the MAT and a critical friend of the schools within the MAT as it develops.
