Hi, I’m Chris and I am a foundation governor as well as the governors safeguarding lead at the school. I was appointed as a Governor in December 2018. I have lived in Bridgwater and the surrounding area all my life. As a former pupil at St John and St Francis I have a close bond and good memories of my time at the school with two of my children currently attending. When the opportunity became available to apply to be Governor I jumped at the chance. I felt it is a great opportunity to give something back to the school.

In professional capacity I work within the MoD as a Technology Procurement Manager from which I look to bring my knowledge and expertise to support the school in achieving its goals. I enjoy being part of the school and take the opportunity to be involved as often as I can. I am passionate about education and want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to meet their maximum potential. The school has a fantastic ethos and a hardworking passionate team of staff that I am proud to be part of.

Outside of work and being a governor I enjoy a round of golf and socialising with friends and family.

If you see me about at the school please feel free to have a chat.
