David Platt

Apart from a 5-year period when I worked in London, I have lived in Tameside all my life. Although my background is in accountancy and consultancy it was inevitable that at some stage I would end up in ‘Education’ in some capacity. My eldest daughter, after a career in human resources, is now a school David Plattsecretary. My youngest daughter is a lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University. My wife, Anne, was the school secretary at Hawthorns School before becoming a governor and subsequently chair of governors at the school in the early 2000’s. My mother was school secretary at Russell Scott School in Denton.

My interests include football (watching) and theatre (watching and playing). Over the years I have been in a number of productions at Guide Bridge Theatre, Oldham Lyceum and Hyde Little Theatre. When I retired from my business, I took some acting courses, got an agent, and can now occasionally be seen in the odd TV programme and adverts.

I became a trustee just before the first lockdown in March 2020 and although I would have preferred this not to have been the backdrop to my first year, it has enabled me to witness the tremendous dedication of all the staff and the resilience of the students and parents under very difficult circumstances. I hope that I can contribute my skills to the continuing success of the schools.
