SEND Lead Governor

I am a parent at Kymbrook School and am very proud to be associated with these two brilliant schools. I believe strongly that a good primary education is the foundation of learning throughout life and I am particularly enthusiastic about using real-world science and engineering projects to stimulate the imaginations of children. As the Lead Governor for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, I am passionate about ensuring our schools maintain their reputations as nurturing and caring environments for our children.

I am the son of two teachers and grew up in Raunds. After studying aeronautical engineering at Cambridge University, I joined the RAF where I spent 16 years as a fighter pilot, flight instructor and test pilot. I am now a freelance aviation consultant and a visiting research fellow at Cranfield University.

Living with my wife and three girls in the countryside I enjoy running, flying vintage aeroplanes and astronomy, and really love fixing broken things which would otherwise be thrown away!
