Parent Governor

Designated Responsible Officer

Resources Team member

Admissions Committee member

I have two children who attend Sandwich Technology School and was very pleased to be elected as a parent governor in 2014. I feel privileged to be a member of the Governing Body. 

I work for Kent County Council within the Internal Audit Team, specialising in fraud prevention and detection. This exposes me to a number of financial risks that face schools and I hope this insight, together with my knowledge of auditing, will assist the school. This is my first experience of being involved with the community and I have been made to feel very welcome by all that are involved with STS.  I want to ensure that the school has all the resources it needs to educate our children and young adults to the highest possible standard.

I am the Responsible Officer for the Governing Body and sit on the Resources Team and the Admissions Committee. The Responsible Officer position provides an internal audit function on the school’s finances and provides the Full Governing Body with an independent view on how the school’s finances are operating. 

Outside of work and this role I am a keen gardener and enjoy the beautiful countryside that surrounds the Sandwich area, especially tree tunnels!
