Foundation governor Appointed by Holy Trinity Parochial Church Council
Term of office 01.08.2013 – 31.07.2021
Serving on: All committees. Chairman of the governing body
No declared business or pecuniary interests.
I have been a foundation governor of Horwich Parish School, elected by the Parochial Church Council of Holy Trinity church, since 1995. I became the chair of the governing body in 1999 when Canon Denis Gatenby retired as Rector of Horwich and Rivington. I serve as a member of all the school’s main committees in addition to its admissions committee, and spend between 10 and 12 hours a week on work for the school. Before retiring in 2006, I worked in education being successively a teacher, primary head teacher, school inspector, deputy head and then head of a local authority’s education service. In terms of family connections with Horwich Parish, both our two oldest granddaughters were educated at the school for the seven years of their primary education. I also serve as the lay chair of Holy Trinity Parochial Church Council.
