Matthew Atkinson

Back to 'Governors' page

Current term of office: 19.11.21 – 18.11.25

I am Matthew Atkinson. My wife Kate and I have two children, Luke in Earth Class and we hope Austin will start Mars next year.

We live nearby in Hawkenbury. I look forward to acting as a parent governor and being active in the school community where our sons will be for years to come, helping ensure St Peters is a happy and successful place giving the very best it can for its pupils.

In my day job, I am a commercial disputes solicitor. I work in the Government Legal Department advising on contentious matters across central government. I am fortunate that my job allows me time each year for voluntary roles such as this. I hope my legal and public sector backgrounds will be of use to the strategic management and accountability aspects of the role. I am also an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Champion at work and hope my interests and experience in this area will be of use.

In my spare time, you will find me trying to supervise two energetic boys in Hawkenbury Rec. Very occasionally, you might find me on the golf course…
