I have been a Director of the Faringdon Academy of Schools from the conversion date in 2012 and now Chair the PR and Community Committee. Prior to this I was a Governor at Faringdon Infant School and more recently at Faringdon Community College. I have been in teaching for 25 years, starting in a middle school in Blackbird Leys, Oxford and then moving to FCC 13 years ago. As well as teaching PE I have been an Extended Services Coordinator and a School Sports Coordinator for the Faringdon Partnership and now combine all three elements as Director for Community Development. I am President of Faringdon Rugby Club, which I started in 2004, which now provides sessions for over 100 children from the local area and have three children of my own who have been through the FAoS education system. My involvement in all of these institutions has made me very passionate about the schools and the community we live in and by being a Director of the Academy I feel that can help with its development and quest for excellence.
