Mr Matthew Atkinson


I am Matthew Atkinson.  My wife Kate and I have two sons at St Peter's, one in Neptune Class and one in Mars Class. 

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.

In my day job, I am a commercial disputes solicitor.  I have worked both in private practice and for the Government Legal Department and hope my legal and public sector backgrounds will be of use to the strategic management and accountability aspects of the role of governor.  

I have also been an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Champion at work and I am now Mental Health and Well-being Governor, working closely with Mrs Jenner.

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…
