I joined as a co-opted governor in 2017 and became chair of the governing board in July 2020. I was formerly head of the Banking and International Finance group of a City law firm, though I now work as a consultant and executive coach. Like other Ambler governors, I was seeking to do something useful in the local community and being a school governor has enabled me to use my skills to make what I hope is a positive contribution. It has also enabled me to learn a huge amount about the school system in England and about what a vibrant, outstanding place Ambler is. I work closely with all of the Governors’ Committees and with our Safeguarding Governor.
