Local Governing Body
I have been a school governor for ten years. I am also Assistant Head Teacher here at St Mark's. My first post as a governor was at Atherton St George's and I have been a Governor at St Mark's since I started working here in 2015.
I love being a Governor and working continuously with the other Governors, Trustees, Staff and our families to ensure our children have the best education, experiences and opportunities they possibly can!
In my spare time I love spending time with my family, I have a little girl called Poppy. I also have a season ticket at Anfield and love to watch Liverpool play.
I have been involved in school governance for many years and am proud to be not only a Trustee of the Wings, but especially Chair of St Marks Local Governing Board. With over 30 years experience in education, I have a passion for Modern Foreign Languages. RE and SEN. I firmly believe that every child should have high aspirations and deserves all the love and support needed for them to reach their goals.
On a personal level, I'm a busy, devoted grandma who loves baking, yoga and walking.
I am a construction standards manager for the Co-op, this involves chairing, controlling and governing changes to standards and specifications as well as preparing and supporting submissions into the leadership forums. I've worked in governance and project delivery for over 10 years.
I run a youth group at St Mark's Church and have done since 2014, since becoming a governor I am proud to be part of our wonderful school - especially how the children and staff have navigated the pandemic.
I am the Assistant Curate in the Parish of Wigan Town Centre, which includes St Mark’s Church and Primary School. I have been a Foundation Governor since moving to Wigan in 2019.
I am new to governance in schools but have learnt so much already from existing staff and governors. I have a passion for seeing local children, young people and their families flourish, and building on the existing relationship between the Church and School.
Before ordination I worked in events and operations management for a creative arts charity in Crosby. I love spending time outdoors with my family. My daughter started Little Lions this year and she loves every minute!
I have been involved in school governance for over 7 years. I am a parent of 2 girls, 1 still attends StMarks and my eldest has now moved onto High School. My passion is to ensure all of the children get the best out of their time at St Marks.
