I live in Kirtlington with my wife, Joanna, a former teacher. We have two daughters and two grandchildren. My involvement with the school stems from my work as a Licensed Lay Minister in the Akeman benefice; I have taken many services in St Mary’s church and am one of the leaders of the monthly Messy Church which meetsthere.

My vision for the school is a community which aims for excellence, where the Christian values enshrined in its foundation are a daily reality in the experience of children and staff, and where the links between the school and church are positive and mutually reinforcing and bring benefit to the village as a whole.
