I became a governor at New Bridge School following the amalgamation of Park Dean, Hilltop, and Marland Fold Schools. I was also Chair of Governors at Spring Brook School for over 15 years. I am now a Trustee of the MAT, a Safeguarding Trustee and I sit on the Pay Committee and the Disciplinary Committee.
For most of my working life I have been in Adult Education in Oldham where I taught young people with additional needs from time to time. I was Curriculum Manager for the Food, Fashion, Arts and Crafts curriculum. I also have been an assessor and moderator for an Awarding Body and in that capacity visited many schools, colleges and training centres.
Since retirement I have many hobbies, most of which are craft based and I love to learn new skills. I think I am a perpetual student!
My aim is that children are given every opportunity to reach their full potential whilst at school and at college, no matter what their starting point is and that they become valued citizens. I love to see the achievements of the young people from New Bridge Multi Academy Trust and take great pride in them.
