As a parent of a child at St George's, I am committed to seeing the school succeed and provide a safe and nurturing    environment for our children to learn and develop to the best of their abilities. I currently work in HR for a local company but worked for a sixth form college for almost 10 years. During my time there I learned a great deal about governance within the education sector and took part in many board meetings and was active in the recruitment of governors, so I feel that this has helped me gain an understanding of what is required.  I feel that the school provides both excellent education and also nurtures the wellbeing of its pupils on all levels.
