I am delighted to accept the honour of the Chair of Governors at Terrington Hall, a school close to my heart, where my three young daughters are thriving and happy and where our family has always been made to feel so welcome.
I am grateful to be handed the baton by Rodger Hobson who, in his nine years on the board and six years as Chair, worked tirelessly to build up Terrington Hall. The new astropitch, the growing pupil population and the calibre of our wonderful staff are testament to his leadership in tandem with our outgoing headmaster, Stephen Mulryne.
Now, working alongside our new Head, Simon Kibler, I seek to generate momentum behind a number of positive strategic projects which will enable Terrington Hall School to continue to flourish and boost the schoolâ€™s brand to a wider audience as well as within our community. As the only truly independent prep school in the area, I am very excited about the opportunities for Terrington Hall to stand proud of its enviable reputation of academic and extracurricular excellence, whilst nurturing its special family ethos. Terrington benefits from a superb team of multi-talented Governors who are generous both with their time and their skills, embodying the spirit of our lovely school. As their new Chair, I stand for positivity, diversity, strong leadership and insight-based decision-making; I now look forward to the new school year with optimism, safe in the knowledge that Terrington has a great team in place to adapt and to thrive in our new reality.
