CO-OPTED GOVERNOR - SONIA
I have served on school governing bodies since autumn 1999 and am currently also a governor at a secondary academy. I have worked as a taxation specialist since 1979 and therefore bring to the governing body a high level of financial expertise. My role as a magistrate and member of the First-tier Tax Tribunal gives me the skill to chair appeal panels. As a family court magistrate I have gained an understanding of the needs of children in care and children in difficult family circumstances.
Background to support the role as a governor
I am a parent. I have a BSc qualification in physics and am currently studying for a Masters degree (MA) in Christian Theology. I am a magistrate in the adult, youth and family courts.
