Any queries should be directed to the Chair of the Governors, Bob Kenwrick or to Mr Stephen Vale, Clerk to the Governors, Reading School, Erleigh Road, Reading RG1 5LW
I joined the Governing Body in March 2015. I am a teacher and Academic Manager by profession, entering the field of education after completing a BSc in Applied Biology, a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and five years as a Research Associate studying the physical interaction of proteins in Thrombosis and Neurofibromatosis. I have been teaching Chemistry for the last 14 years and have experience of teaching in both the independent and state sectors. My day to day activities involve scrutinising data, finding multiple solutions to complex problems, strategic planning, monitoring academic departments and advising on whole school academic issues. I have developed an in depth knowledge of tracking pupil progress, careers education, timetabling and curriculum, exams management, data management and analysis, staffing and pastoral care within both boarding and day settings. I am interested in all aspects of school management. I am keen to utilise my position on the Governing Body to support Reading School in the education of its pupils against an ever changing educational landscape.
