Rick Moore - 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.
Steve Martin - 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.
Jessica Bogic - Authority Governor
I am the Widening Participation Manager at De Montfort University and through this role I have responsibility of overseeing the Universities commitment to outreach projects and activities in Leicester, Leicestershire. I am very passionate about working with young people and ensuring they have access to all opportunities. Throughout my role I support current DMU students to volunteer in schools and communities both in Leicestershire but also overseas in countries like India, Thailand and Africa delivering projects around skills development, language support and extra-curricular activities like performance arts projects. Alongside my work commitments, I am a keen sports player and am an umpire and coach for adult and junior netball club. I was born in Leicester and studied through my school education and then onto university all in Leicester and love the Leicester community. I am excited to be a part of the Fullhurst governing body.
Elly Cutkelvin - Co-opted Governor
I have been elected as City Councillor within Leicester since 2011 and I am very proud to represent the Saffron Ward in the south of the city. I live locally to the school and will see all three of my children attend Fullhurst, a choice I couldn’t be happier with (in fact I couldn’t believe how lucky we are)! At the City Council I have a broad experience and attend many committees, some of which I have chaired; these include Children and Young People Scrutiny, Neighbourhood Scrutiny, Planning, and Overview Select Committee. I am currently the chair of the Health and Wellbeing Scrutiny Commission and am therefore working closely with our health partners across the city and county, a role that I find very challenging and rewarding. I have a broad experience sitting on many voluntary management boards; these include a variety of local residents groups and Saffron Young People’s Project, a detached youth work organisation. I have also been the Chair of Governors at a local Infant and nursery school and faced many challenges in what was a very turbulent time for the school. I have lived in Leicester all my life and have personally benefited from attending local community schools that truly represent the diversity of our city and communities. I could tell as soon as I first visited Fullhurst that I share the same values as the school’s staff and leadership team; I look forward to supporting all to achieve the school’s vision.
Jane Hagreen - Parent Governor
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.
Sarah Hammond - Parent Governor
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.
Nicki Mullineaux - Foundation Governor
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.
Luke Pulford - Foundation Governor
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.
Steve White - Foundation Governor
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.
