I have lived in Buxton since 1990 and my children have been educated in Buxton schools. I currently run my own consultancy company specialising in Adventure Education. I have worked professionally in Adventure Education for over 40 years having been an Outdoor Education Advisor for two Local Authorities and Principal of several Outdoor Centres. My interest in becoming a Governor of the school was spurred by the schools emphasis on Learning Outside the Classroom. I hope my experience in this field will help the school realise its aims and enable more children to experience the positive values of learning outdoors.
