I am delighted to have been selected to become a Parent Governor of the School.
I am a product of Harlaxton School, having attended too many years ago to remember, and still have friends from those days. I also have one child at School at present Olivia in Reception and two more due two come in the next 3 years. Trained as a land agent I then moved to be self employed as the senior partner in a financial services business mainly general insurance and financial planning. This business focuses on delivering its services to the wider rural community. I have been involved in this business for 23 years now. This role has allowed me to gain experience in budgeting, business planning and execution, recruitment, employee disciplinary and grievance, performance management, business development and client relationship management. This role also has brought me in contact with quite a number of very useful contacts who have skills and services well beyond my own.
Having lived away from the area for a while I moved to Harlaxton in 2012 with my wife and then 2 children, my parents have lived in the village since 1997. However home has always been local to Harlaxton as we have a family farm in Little Ponton, which I am also actively involved with.
My wife Marieke also enjoys her involvement in the PTA and all the good work they do supporting the School.
I look forward to the using my knowledge, skills and contacts to add to the already well run school.
