Chair of Governors
I am very proud to have been Chair of Governors at Fullhurst since September 2010 and be involved in such a vibrant, exciting and fast improving college. I am also Chair of the Board of a number of significant sub-regional and regional organisations, including Building Schools for the Future. I have 35 years’ experience as a Justice of the Peace and 40 years in the property market, skills I can use to support both the staff and pupils. I am Leicester City born and bred and believe that a good education is vital to opening up opportunities for young people and I hope that sharing my experiences inspires the pupils to work hard. In September 2012, I was listed in the Leicester Mercury as being one of the 200 most influential people in Leicestershire. I am currently the Managing Director of Richard Moore Professional Services specialising in general property advice particularly to the development industry, ranging from private individuals and local companies to national and multinational businesses and before that I was the founder/Managing Director of Moore and York Chartered Surveyors.
Vice Chair of Governors
I have been a Governor at Fullhurst since September 2010 and I am proud to have been able to play a small part in the tremendous progress the college has made recently. I moved to Leicester in 1976 when I was appointed as an A level Economics teacher at what was then a City grammar school. I remained in education and in Leicester for the majority of my working life. Later in my career I was working more with students with special needs and for 13 years I was a Vice Principal at Gateway Sixth Form College. Having now retired, I value the opportunity to continue using my skills and expertise to support the staff and pupils at Fullhurst. I am particularly interested in teaching and learning and I believe that working with the school to ensure this is of the highest quality is the most important part of the governors’ role. I am currently Chair of the Business Management Committee which faces the challenge of ensuring that the funds available to the school are used to provide the best educational experience possible for our pupils; ensuring resources are available for academic subjects but that the school can continue to offer other activities such as sport, drama and music.
The transformation of Fullhurst Community College is one of the most exciting developments in education I have seen. I hope the experience and knowledge I have gained through my work in various colleges and universities will support the work of the dedicated staff here. I currently work in Academic Development at De Montfort University. I first became a Governor at Fullhurst in 2008 and so can really appreciate the changes in recent years. Although not a Parent Governor, I have one son at University (having received a fantastic start at Fullhurst) and another who started in September 2015.
I joined as a Parent Governor in February 2016, after my son started at Fullhurst in 2015, via Imperial Avenue and Follville Junior schools. Since moving to the local area 15 years ago, Fullhurst has undergone many dramatic changes, from being a school actively avoided by many of my friends with children, moving catchment area in their child’s early years, to becoming well-managed, successful and over-subscribed college. I have worked in the charity sector for the past 10 years, primarily in the areas of community fundraising, marketing and communication. I hope to bring these skills to the Board of Governors to benefit the school further, whilst being able to voice a parent-perspective over many matters, which so critically affect the future of our children.
I joined the Fullhurst staff in September 2010, moving to Leicester through the TeachFirst programme. I teach Mathematics, as part of the faculty of Maths and ICT team, as well as working as Assistant Principal with a focus on raising achievement. I joined the governing body as Staff Governor because I am passionate about the future of Fullhurst Community College. I am fortunate enough to be able to see on a daily basis the exceptional values that exist within the college community. I aim to use my insight of the day to day interactions that happen within the college, to help shape the direction of travel for the college over the next few years
I joined Fullhurst in February 2016 as a Parent Governor after my child started the school in September 2015. I have governed another local Infant school for the last 3 ½ years and I wanted to bring that experience to Fullhurst. I was born and raised in Leicester and care very passionately about our city; in particular the growth and development of Leicester West for where I have been a local resident for the past 12 years. I am enthusiastic about improving the outcomes for our children and the key to this is their education. I have been very impressed with the smooth transition of my child into Fullhurst and the progress that has been made so far. The positive, diverse and inclusive ambience of the school is what has captured me the most; along with the overall vibe that every child matters regardless. So when the opportunity arose to join Fullhurst’s Governing Body I jumped at the chance and am now proud to say that I can play a small part at the college as a voice from a parent’s perspective.
I have been a Governor at Fullhurst Community College since September 2010, and am currently chair of the Learning Committee. My association with Fullhurst began when my eldest son started at the school as an 11 year-old in 2005. Both my sons did well at Fullhurst and are now at university studying sciences. I was born in Leicester but moved away with my family as a small child; I returned in the 1990s to attend university. I have worked in the higher education sector for nearly 20 years and am passionate about education at all levels, from early years to adult education. I am proud to be associated with Fullhurst and to play a part in a college which genuinely transforms young people’s lives.
My involvement with Fullhurst Community College began as a parent when my daughter joined the school aged 11 in 2005. Fullhurst had been our first choice and it was definitely the right choice as it gave her an excellent foundation to build on, and she is now at university studying French and Russian and continuing to do really well. During her time there the college went from strength to strength and I was really impressed by the commitment, dedication, hard work and vision of staff, so when in September 2010 the opportunity arose to become a governor it was an easy decision to make. I wanted to be involved as the incredible transformation continued and see where that would lead, as well as to put something back into the school which had given my daughter such a great start and it was the right decision. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect but it has been interesting, exciting, inspiring and rewarding and I would not have wanted to miss out on being part of it. I came to Leicester University many years ago and have stayed here ever since. I have always worked in social care and believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to realise their full potential. This is also one of Fullhurst’s objectives for all students so I am pleased to be able to play a small part in supporting the college to achieve its ambitious goals for all students.
I have over 23 years’ experience with the Leicestershire Constabulary in a variety of roles. I am a currently a temporary Assistant Chief Constable (ACC) (strategic alliance) for Leicestershire Constabulary, working across Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire. I lead East Midlands operations providing specialist firearms and tactical support and criminal justice service for forces in the East Midlands. Recently, I have taken a lead on developing five force regional discussions on blue light opportunities. Between 2014 and 2015, as Head of Business Change, I led the force transformation programme. Prior to that, I was the Chief Superintendent Basic Command Unit (BCU) Commander for Leicester City, leading local policing and working with communities. I was also actively involved in the City Strategic Partnerships and chaired the troubled families’ development group. Between 2008 and 2009 , I headed up the force Community Safety Bureau and had responsibility for the implementation of neighbourhood policing, tackling anti-social behaviour, offender management including drugs and youth policy, environmental design along with the strategic alignment with Local Authorities and preventing counter terrorism. I was also the force lead for intelligence and the National Intelligence Model. Outside of work, I have two children, and am a keen pilot and skier. I have also developed my construction skills recently whilst renovating my home.
I moved to Leicester when I started at university and have lived here since. Since leaving university I managed and worked with several local businesses. Alongside my commitments at Fullhurst I manage Dock, Leicester's hub for high growth technology businesses. Other roles that I hold include being a member of the Joint Audit, Risk and Assurance Panel for Leicestershire Police, a board member of Saffron Young Peoples Project, running a business consultancy business specialising in supporting growing businesses and being a Princes Trust mentor.
I have been the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the School Development Agency (SDSA) for 10 years, before which I was the Principal of one of the most successful schools in the City of Leicester. The SDSA is a company created by central government to work with schools and local authorities and other government organisations to promote improvement within schools. Over the past 10 years the organisation has flourished and I have been instrumental in creating the conditions for an effective social enterprise model for improvement through the collaboration and partnerships with schools, which has gone on to improve the life chances of children in Leicester and beyond. I also combine my chairmanship of the SDSA with a strong interest in the promotion and development of physical activity and sport. I have been the Chair of the Leicester Sports Alliance and the Cultural Strategy and have worked with professional sports clubs and local organisations. In recent years I have specifically encouraged the development of an international collaboration which has led to the early stages of developing partnerships with schools and governments in other countries. Building on my experience as a head teacher in one of Leicester’s diverse communities, I am enthusiastic to maximise the opportunities of strong relationships between Leicester and India. My work has also focused on developing the legacy of the Special Olympics held in Leicester in 2009. My ultimate aim is to take the Special Olympics to South Asia, particularly to India and Africa.
