Co-Opted Governor

As an officer in the Black Watch, a Highland Regiment, I spent 37 years in the British Army in training, managerial and leadership posts, serving across the world, including stints in Hongkong, Belize, Germany, Berlin, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Slovakia and the UK, both in more normal times as well as on operations. I subsequently spent almost ten years as the Clerk (Chief Executive) of the Worshipful Company of Saddlers, one of the City of London’s most ancient Guilds: it is a charitable grant-making institution with considerable educational, training, property, investment and membership (trade) interests. I have three daughters, one of whom is a primary school teacher in a maintained school in Lambeth, and four grandchildren, so I have much empathy with the ethos and values espoused by Stower Provost School and hope that my experience can be put to good use to help this school face and overcome the varied challenges that confront it – both now and in the future.
