School Trips

I grew up in Chadderton, attending first Yew Tree Primary School and then the Hulme Grammar School for Girls. I worked for the NHS for many years before taking the decision to give up work to focus on my family. This also gave me the time to become a school governor, initially as a parent governor at New Bridge School, where my son was a student from 2007 to 2015.

During my time as a New Bridge governor I was involved in many exciting changes, including its conversion to an academy and subsequently a multi-academy trust, the development of Hollinwood Academy and the evolution of the New Bridge Group.

I am now delighted to be a member of the board of trustees of New Bridge Group. Being able to be involved at this level to help to enable all of our amazing young people achieve the very best they can is a genuine privilege. I am the Personnel Trustee and I sit on the Appeals Committee.

In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, walking and spending time with my family and our dog. I live in Chadderton with my husband and two children.
