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 am an appointed governor, joining the governing body in March 2014. I am a retired chartered accountant and stockbroker, having lived and worked across Asia and the Americas for almost 20 years. For the majority of my career I managed teams of research analysts looking into economies, industries and companies to provide investment advice to professional investors. I have also spent extended periods as a visiting post-graduate researcher at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan and in a similar role in the Japanese central bank, the Bank of Japan. I am currently a serving school governor at a primary school in Hampshire and a local councillor. My interests include how Reading School prepares boys for life after they leave the school and, against the backdrop of the way in which my life and career unfolded, opportunities for boys to find experience overseas. I have a son who recently joined the school as a boarding pupil.
