Current term of office: 19.11.21 – 18.11.25

I have lived in Tunbridge Wells for the past 10 years and currently have two children at St Peter’s, with a third joining (hopefully) in the next academic year. Although early on in their education, we have experienced the positive influence that the school has had on their outlook, sense of self and both academic and extra-curricular achievements.

In terms of my career, I have worked in the technology sector for around twenty-five years. My current management role focuses on the use of technology in a global firm, and I am particularly keen to explore and develop opportunities to use appropriate technology within the school setting to the benefit of the children and staff at St. Peter’s. I believe that this is particularly important given that our children have much more access to technology in their daily lives and that the effects and influence of technology can be significant.

During my spare time, you’ll find me hanging out with my family, and occasionally getting to go for a run or negotiating a trip to the cinema!
