I am a Reader at St Mary-at-Finchley, one of the sponsoring churches for the School, and became interested in serving on the Governing Body as a result of the links between the School and the church.

As a Christian, a retired magistrate and commercial solicitor, I hope I can bring my experience of participating and chairing boards and committees, together with my knowledge of good governance and Christian ways of working, to benefit the School.

It is a great privilege to work with a head teacher and board of governors who are committed to doing the best for the children and staff at the School.

I have been head teacher and a governor at St Mary’s since September 2015. I first became a head teacher in 2008 and regard it as my calling to work with children and their families in this capacity. I have taught in Church of England schools in London since I started my teaching career and as a practising Christian, I greatly value the opportunity this brings to express our faith freely as a school community. I also value the firm foundation provided by the ethos of such schools, not only in enabling us to teach the curriculum form our Christian perspective, but also to teach children about the love of God.

I was elected parent governor in November 2019. I have been a parent at the school since 2012 and currently have five children at St Mary’s (from Reception to Year 6). I have a long-standing interest in children’s welfare, originally training as an Anaesthetic doctor specialising in Paediatrics. I care deeply for our school community and believe that all children, and their families, should feel included and supported during their education, allowing them to achieve the best possible outcomes.
