Meet Our Governors
Chair of Governors (Co-opted Governor)
I feel privileged to be Chair of Governors at Charles Darwin Community Primary School. I have worked in education over the past twenty years in a variety of roles, including that of headteacher and am a former member of staff at Charles Darwin. Currently, I am working as a consultant for an education training company improving the skills and knowledge base of staff and governors in schools both in the UK and overseas.
Vice –Chair of Governors (LA Governor)
I have been a member of the Governing Body of Charles Darwin Community School for seven years and it has been a pleasure to be involved in the school’s continuing drive for excellence in all it does. As a retired Headteacher and Early Year’s educator, I take a special interest in the younger children in the school and enjoy my regular visits to their classrooms and activities.
George Studd (Co-opted Governor)
I spent the whole of my working life as a teacher, the last twenty two as head teacher of a local high school. Two years ago I was delighted to accept an invitation to join the governing body as a co-opted member. It has proved to be a very rewarding experience. This is my first direct involvement in a primary school although I have wide experience as a governor having previously served on the governing body of a local high school, Sir John Deane’s 6th Form College and finally Mid Cheshire College of F.E. where I was Chairman for 8 years. I live locally and both my children attended local primary and secondary schools.
