Co-opted Governor Member of the Personnel and Curriculum Committees
Term of office: 4th March 2021 – 3rd March 2025
I am a former parent of a child at the school and was Chair of HWS PSA between 2017 – 2021. Although my child is no longer at the school it seemed natural to continue supporting the HWS community and volunteered my services to become a school Governor. Over the years I have been continually impressed by the student cohort and seen the amazing things they go on to achieve.
My background is set firmly in the arts and run my own company creating costume and creature effects for film, TV, theatre, events and theme parks. Much of my work is creating aliens, puppets and space suits, but alongside that training the next generation of creatives is very important to me. For my role as Head of Costume for The Olympic and Paralympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies I worked to create opportunities for school leavers, work experience for students and volunteering roles for those 18 – 80.
Mentoring and training is part of my daily work life and I regularly guest lecture at colleges.
