Director of Development, St James Schools
My whole working life has been in education, as a teacher, Headteacher, teacher trainer, inspector and governor. Eleven years were spent in State Primary Schools and then thirty-two years in the Independent Sector. Beyond my employment I have supported and held responsible positions in various areas of education; e.g. Chairman of ISA, Chairman of ISA Professional Practice, Chairman of ISA Professional Development. For many years I represented ISA on the ISCTIP panel and was a judge for the Teaching Awards Scheme. Since retiring as a Headteacher in my current post as Director of Development I organise INSET and conferences to inspire and nourish teachers, parents and governors. The current post coupled with my experience as an Inspector for ISI has given me extensive knowledge of the schools in the Independent Sector and their needs. At present I am a Vice-President of ISA and serve this great organisation with enthusiasm and diligence.
