(Member of Personnel Committee, Link Governor to Science Department)
My eldest son started at Highgate Wood School in 2014 and my second son is due to join him in 2016. I have a long-standing interest in education and supporting local schools; I have been a governor and chair of governors at Coleridge Primary for about 8 years. In this time I have learned a great deal about the challenges to schools providing excellent education, support of staff and general governance. I am also a Consultant Nephrologist at the Royal Free Hospital and have learned a lot over the years about efficiency, change and improving delivery in a large organisation some of which I hope will be helpful as a governor of Highgate Wood School.
Personally, I have a keen interest in promoting science, healthy living and emotional intelligence in primary and secondary education.
Term of office: to 1st March 2020
