Why a Trustee?

I believe education is one of the key foundations for the success and development of our society, and for the enrichment of individuals to make a valued contribution to their lives and others. What children learn and experience at school has a life-long impact.

Although I am not an educator, I believe with my professional, voluntary and personal experience and skills I can contribute towards giving our local children the best educational experience and start in life. It will be an excellent opportunity to work with a team towards a common goal, making a real difference to our local cluster of schools.
