Chair

My entire career has been in education in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire. I joined the staff of Jordanthorpe Comprehensive School, Sheffield, in 1982 as a teacher of English and drama. Having specialised in directing musical productions for the students and staff, as well as being assistant head of year, I moved to Eckington School in Derbyshire to be head of my own year group. Further promotions, to Dinnington School as assistant head and Thrybergh School as deputy, led to my appointment as headteacher at Thrybergh in 2009.

In 2011 I was also made executive head teacher of Dalton Foljambe Primary School which subsequently joined with Thrybergh to form the first 3-16 through school in Rotherham – Thrybergh Academy and Sports College.

I retired from full time teaching in the summer of 2014 to work as a consultant headteacher and develop new interests as an Ofsted inspector and local magistrate. I am chair of governors at a Rotherham primary school and I now volunteer one half day every week for a local hospice shop.
