Co-opted governor

I joined the Governing Body in 2018 as a co-opted governor to get involved with my local community, gain a better understanding of the education system ahead of my child starting school and to support the hardworking and committed people who work at Purwell School.

Following a PhD in Physics, I am now a Systems Engineer at a major aerospace company in the area, working on cutting edge Space missions that will enable us to understand more about our Solar System. My aim is to apply my ~12 years’ experience in industry towards continuing to improve the school.

I am Chair of the School Improvement Committee, and I am the subject link governor for Science and Geography.
