I have lived in Watton at Stone since 1981 and have been a governor of the School since 1987. During that time I have seen many changes to the education system that our children experience and I have been convinced for a long time that the quality of education that they get in their early years at school is a vital foundation for achieving their full potential in their later school careers.
I have 3 sons who all attended the school and my wife, Prue, taught there for a number of years. I have been an active member of the Friends of Watton School and have been both Treasurer and Chair in the distant past. I now have grandchildren who are just starting their journey through our Early Years Foundation Stage so have a continuing interest in the work of the school.
In my working life I have been in the IT industry for over 40 years and in the past have set up and run my own software business. I am currently retired but keeping quite busy with a number of interests.
