I am the current Chair of Academy Advisory Group at Castle Mead School and as a community Academy Advisor I have a particular focus on Maths, MFL and SPAG.

I became an Academy Advisor (formerly known as governor)  the school was simply an architect’s drawing and it has been wonderful to see the school and its visions and values come to life for the children.

I have worked in education within various different positions for 12 years now, and I currently co-ordinate the collaborative working of the Trowbridge school cluster and Teaching School Alliance.

Within my role of school governor I have particular responsibility for Maths, MFL and SPAG.
